Developing the employability skills of displaced persons

Considering the potential positive contributions migrant entrepreneurs can make to EU-societies, it is in the interest to support migrants aiming at establishing their own businesses.

Technology not only provides an opportunity for refugees and migrants to maintain relationships with friends and families, it also provides a route to raising awareness about the challenges they face and it makes it easier to receive assistance and use ‘bridging’ social capital. Partner organisations from Austria, Cyprus, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania and the United Kingdom develop tools and material to help in this regards.
