The SPRING project (Sustainable PRactices of INteGration) is funded by the European Union's research and innovation programme Horizon2020. Focused on the integration of recently arrived migrants in the context of the large-scale arrivals of refugees and other migrants since 2014, it aims to develop a toolbox to improve the innovation, effectiveness and sustainability of the work done by Europe’s integration stakeholders at national, regional and local levels. As partner, SOLIDAR, along with projects leader Fondazione ISMU, is organising a launch conference ''Promoting evidence-based Communities of Practice on migrant integration'' to present the project and engage a broad stakeholders audience.
Description: The SPRING Launch conference aims to explore how knowledge exchange can be best achieved around sustainable integration practices. It will look at the knowledge needs among researchers, policymakers and practitioners while highlighting positive experiences and identifying possible synergies. The conference will kick-start the SPRING participatory process that, over two years, will develop into a number of tools allowing diverse communities of practices to identify and access validated knowledge on sustainable integration practices. Access to sound and relevant knowledge by practitioners, researchers and policymakers is key for developing sustainable integration practices.
