The inHERE project (Higher Education Supporting Refugees in Europe) is running a series of webinars, framed within the Living Lab activities coordinated by the University of Barcelona, with the purpose of sharing, exchanging, assessing and creating joint initiatives and activities for the university community to promote the integration of refugees in the European Higher Education area. These events will take place from October 2017 to February 2018.
- October 4: Introduction to useful concepts for your projects with refugee population
- October 25: Recognition of prior learning
- November 29: Access to Higher Education
- December 13: Preparatory courses
- January 10: Socio-Economical integration
- February 7: Overarching Diversity Management
Webinars are in English and are aimed at members of university communities (teaching staff or PDI, administration and service staff or PAS, and students).
The main aim of the inHERE project is to create opportunities for the refugees to take part in the European Higher Education Area. In order to do so, inHERE strengthens knowledge exchange, peer-support and academic partnership to ease the access and integration to HEI for the refugees.
The inHERE project is co-funded by the European Union (through Erasmus+ Programme) and coordinated by the Mediterranean Universities Union (UNIMED). Apart from the University of Barcelona and UNIMED, other members of the project are the European Universities Association (EUA), La Sapienza University of Rome and Campus France. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is an associate member.
