Advanced Learning and Inclusive EnviroNment (ALIEN) for Higher Education through greater knowledge and understanding of migration flows in Europe.

The project aims at contributing to greater equity and social cohesion within Europe, through a series of knowledge-exchange activities with diverse stakeholders (academics, national and local authorties, migrant communities and organisations) and through the understanding of complexities of migration.

Given the critical context of the current refugee crisis in Europe, the projects objectives are: - To advance young people inter-cultural competences, knowledge and understandings of migration through transnational, multi and interdisciplinary collaboration of academic staff, migrant organizations and postgraduate students. - To develop engagement of Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) with local and international migrant organizations as well as regional authorities to build bridges and share knowledge, good practices and raise awareness of issues around migration.
