The webinar, which will be given in English, is aimed at members of university communities (teaching staff or PDI, administration and service staff or PAS, and students) who carry out or want to carry out any project or activity in order to ease the access to HEI for the refugees. The event is also opened to those in the University community who are interested in these initiatives.
Webinars are framed within the second output of this project, the Living Lab, which is led by the University of Barcelona. Their purpose is to share, exchange, assess and create joint initiatives, projects and activities for the university community to promote the integration of the refugee students in HEI.
