SIRIUS partners met last February for the first kick-off meeting. During two days, partners discussed the steps for the development of the project across the next three years.
A lunch talk "Here to Stay? Migrants, Refugees and Asylum Seekers in European Labour Markets" was also organised in collaboration with our partner SOLIDAR. It aimed at fostering exchange among practitioners and stakeholders to better appreciate the integration capacities of cities and municipalities to contribute building successful local integration practices. More than 80 people took part and we fostered knowledge exchange and experiences among practitioners, policy-makers and academics.
Case studies from Greece, Italy and Serbia were presented by SolidarityNow, IDC and ARCI and we had the opportunity to discuss their cases with representatives of the European Commission, UNHCR and UNRISD.
