The project aimed to enhance the capacity of service providers in the countries of origin to deliver relevant and cost- effective pre-departure integration services to the third-country nationals migrating to the EU, through improved networking among themselves and their counterparts in the countries of destination in the EU, and better coordination of the pre-departure and post-arrival provision of relevant services based on the good practices in this field identified by the project.

 

There was knowledge sharing and network building among practitioners from countries of origin to explore pathways to a stronger link between pre-departure and post-arrival immigrant integration services. 

 

Subjects/topics were divided into categories including Job Matching and Labour Market integration pre-departure. Partnership for Skills Development, views and reflections from project partner countries.

 

POLO Rome was  taken in under the Partnerships for Skills Development.

 

Shared practices and testimonies from migrants who were also invited became part of the lessons for consolidation.
