The third edition of the Social Innovation for Refugee Inclusion seminar follows up from two previous events in 2016 and 2017. More than three years on from the peak period of arrivals to Europe, many countries are shifting from ‘crisis management’ towards long-term inclusion of migrant and refugee populations. This event aims to explore how innovations in living situations promote community-driven inclusion, overcoming divisions, facilitating economic opportunities, and fostering a sense of ‘home’.

During that event, the H2020 SIMRA project, in which Euromontana is involved, will present some case studies of the project linked to refugee integration in rural communities.
