What is being done?

The European Commission facilitates the exchange of good practices on the integration of migrants among Member States through mutual learning activities. These activities also promote networking among policymakers and allow them to better address current and future challenges.

Through the Erasmus+ programme, the Commission funds projects and other activities for the integration of migrants in education.

The European Commission co-funds the SIRIUS network. This network supports the education of children and young people with a migrant background through strategic activities on the national and international level, bringing together researchers, policymakers, practitioners in the field of migrant education, and migrants and refugees themselves.
