SAR board member Domna Stanton and a SAR staff representative will speak at an event hosted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki on October 4th in connection with the S.U.C.RE. (Supporting University Community pathways for Refugees-migrants) Erasmus+ KA2 project.

S.U.C.RE. has focused on the response of the universities to the academic needs of refugees/migrants students and scholars and to the formation of good practices guidelines through the development of training modules addressed to public and voluntary sector working in the field with the specific population.  Specifically, the project has focused on the processes required for the proper integration of refugees/migrants (students and scholars) in higher education as well as on their academic support after their acceptance/entrance in a university. It has, additionally, focused on the psychosocial integration/support of refugees/migrants and their proper information on legal and health issues and has lead to the creation of educational/training material for use by practitioners and interested parties.

The Multiplier Event aims to bring together academics, NGOs, practitioners working in the field, EU/national representatives and refugee students/scholars to discuss effective ways that can facilitate integration of refugee/migrants in higher education and society, making use of the project’s results.
