The project "DREAM: Dynamic Reinforcement for European Adaptation of Migrants" had the aim to reinforce the migrant integration provision through an exchange of experience on priority integration areas and spread results of successful initiatives through an EU-wide network of stakeholders. The project developed and disseminated a comprehensive database of good practices at EU level focused on migrant integration enhancement through education.
The database provides valuable experience from 9 European countries and beyond on effective methodologies for integration and work with migrants addressing needs related to better social, cultural and economic integration.
The DREAM project products are useful for people working at integration centres for refugees, language educators providing language courses for migrants, volunteers, trainers and counsellors, interpreters, European cooperation practitioners, migrants, etc.
