SPRING | Sustainable Practices of Integration 

This project is closed and ran between 2020 and 2023.


Sustainable Practices of Integration – SPRING is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project.

SPRING focuses 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.


SPRING aimed at:

  • engaging with relevant communities of practice
  • collecting evidence on sustainable and effective integration policy practices
  • identifying successful and sustainable practices targeted at the integration of newly arrived migrants
  • promoting an evidence culture in integration policy
  • creating innovative knowledge exchange tools on sustainable practices of integration


The project aimed to mobilise significant research, networks and communications capacity and gather, summarise and share the best available research and evidence on the effectiveness, innovation, transferability, sustainability and evaluation methods for integration policies and practice.

Project partners

The SPRING consortium is composed of 11 partners, including SOLIDAR and brings together some of Europe’s most well-connected integration researchers, think-tanks and stakeholder networks with the support of global stakeholders.
