About the project
IEUME is a 2-year Erasmus+ KA2 Project that wishes to support, via innovative educational tools, the integration process of people with a migrant background (refugees, asylum seekers and economic migrants). Said tools will help them gain access to information and a better understanding of some of the most important – and pertinent to them – EU-related issues, including the rights and obligations they have in their host EU states.
The project will design and develop an inclusive, interactive and user-friendly digital toolkit which will also feature gamified modules covering European socio-cultural, political and economic issues. The toolkit will also be available via mobile platforms/applications. In essence, the IEUME project will assist individuals of migrant background to receive information and to better understand important aspects of EU-related issues as well the rights and opportunities the Union offers them. The educational resources to be developed and made available will cover the fields of EU Institutions, Access to Rights, Political Culture and Civic Participation, Employability and Cultural Heritage.
