SIforREF
Integrating Refugees in Society and the Labour Market Through Social Innovation

SIforREF aims to enhance significantly existing refugee integration policies on the regional and local level. Our goal is that social innovative and inclusive measures become mainstream. This is not only an exchange of good practices; our task is to jointly design and implement methodologies and identify the social innovative conditions that must be met. The main outputs will be tools for evaluating and designing social innovative practices and pilots that result in inclusive policies.

To do so, the partnership will investigate and build on best practices and initiate a mutual learning process among central European regions, especially the five neighbourhood regions involved in the project.

Main objectives of the project: 

  • Refugee integration: Enhance existing policies on the regional and local level.
  • Inclusive innovation: Advocate for the mainstreaming of social innovative and inclusive policies.
