AMIF Funding Call 2020: Migrant children's transition to adulthood

Title

AMIF, the European Commission's Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund, is calling for funding proposals for projects that facilitate migrant children's transition to adulthood.

Children constitute a large proportion of the migrants arriving to Europe: in 2019, 27% were children, 14 100 of whom were unaccompanied. The objective of this topic is to stimulate and support the exchange of good practices and knowledge-sharing amongst various relevant actors providing support to unaccompanied migrant children during their transition to adulthood in their new countries.

This topic is not aimed at capacity-building for institutionalised care systems, or research on transition to adulthood and forms of supporting it.

Funding will be granted for such actions as:

  • conferences, workshops, seminars, thematic meetings, study visits;
  • exchange programs;
  • developing training modules that can be further shared for other similar actions in the future, including outside the scope of the financed programme;
  • providing training developed under the programme or in other contexts to the chosen beneficiaries of the programme – public and/or private actors who provide support to unaccompanied minors to ease their transition towards adulthood.

For the benefit of design, implementation and dissemination of the results the project, proposals are recommended to include in the consortium relevant partners at national, regional and local levels.

Proposals should build upon the results of previously funded projects where relevant, such as in particular:

  • The Daphne Toolkit,
  • Commission grants managed by Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers and in particular for projects on the rights of the child.

More information is available on the European Commission's website, where proposals should be submitted by 16 February 2021 (at 17:00 Brussels time).
