The European Commission in collaboration with EUROCITIES is organising the 2nd edition of the Urban Academy on the Integration of Migrants and Refugees. This will take place in Antwerp on 21-22 May.
What is the Urban Academy on Integration?
The Urban Academy on Integration is a training programme for practitioners and policy-makers working on integration at local, regional and national level. It provides the opportunity to create networks of peers working on similar integration issues across Europe.
The Academy is organised as a mix of experts' inputs as well as peer exhanges on individual policy issues and challenges. Participants will have the chance to discuss and explore innovative solutions to specific challenges they are facing in their city in the field of integration.
The Academy was launched in 2018 under the framework of the Urban Agenda partnership on the inclusion of migrants and refugees. This year, the two themes of the Academy are integration into the labour market and housing for migrant inclusion. These themes were selected based on the findings of a survey with European cities.

All costs of travel, accommodation and meals will be covered for the selected participants.
