«Introduction to useful concepts for your projects with refugee population» is the title for the first webinar organized by the University of Barcelona framed within the inHERE project (Higher Education Supporting Refugees in Europe). It will take place on Wednesday, October 4 at 4.15 p.m. and will be given by Georgios Milios, lecturer from the Faculty of Law of the UB.

The main aim of inHERE project is to create opportunities for the refugees to take part in the European Higher Education Area. In order to do so, inHERE strengthens knowledge exchange, peer-support and academic partnership to ease the access and integration to European higher education institutions for the refugees.

These seminars are framed within the second part of this project, Living Lab, which is led by the UB. Living Lab wants to share, exchange, assess and create joint initiatives, projects and activities for the university community to promote the integration of the refugee students in European higher education institutions.

The inHERE project is co-funded by the European Union (through Erasmus+ Programme) and coordinated by the Mediterranean Universities Union (UNIMED). Apart from the University of Barcelona and UNIMED, other members of the projects are the European Universities Association (EUA), Sapienza University of Rome and Campus France. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is an associate member.
