Europe: EPIM funds available to unlock innovative solutions for migrant inclusion
The European Programme for Integration and Migration (EPIM) has partnered with Impact Hub to identify socially innovative solutions (projects, processes, services, practices) that address inclusion challenges affecting young migrant men (around 18-35 years old) and migrant women with a whole-of-society approach in EU, EFTA or Western Balkan countries. With the call for proposals Rethinking Inclusion, EPIM hopes to support their impact assessment and scalability in a way that can inform European inclusion policies, funding and practice.
Up to 20 shortlisted solutions will participate in a case study analysis where social impact experts will take a closer look at the essence and impact of the solution as well as possible scaling opportunities. Up to 8 solutions will be selected to be matched with stakeholders interested in adapting the solution in Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Portugal or Sweden. Selected pairs will be awarded with capacity support grants of up to 30,000 EUR to prepare for the scaling or transfer.
Those practitioners willing to apply are invited to create an account before 15 July 2018. They will receive the application package and regular updates about the call. Actual applications are to be submitted between 16 July and 15 September, 23:59 CET. Applicants who would have submitted their application by 31 July will receive a first feedback, giving them the possibility to improve their application by the final deadline.
