A member of the Assembly of European Regions, Kahramanmaras Metropolitan Municipality (Turkey), is going to submit a new project within the Call for Proposals for Migrants Entrepreneurship Support Schemes launched by the European Commission – Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME), deadline 20 December 2016 17.00 hours (Brussels time).
The project idea deals with the establishment of a Migrant Education, Training and Advice (META) centre to support the Syrian migrant community in order to set up their own businesses. The centre will provide migrants with the opportunity to become more familiar with the local business and regulatory environment as well as local language courses.
The lead partner is looking for two additional partners to complete the consortium, coming from EU members and COSME participating countries which have within their territories a large Syrian migrant population. Preference will be given to German and Swedish partners but the search is anyways open and it will be discussed case by case. In terms of responsibilities, the missing partners will be involved in sharing information, experience and methodologies within the consortium, in transferring to other regions/countries the successful entrepreneurship support programme, and in designing and implementing new joint projects between the partner organisations.
If you are interested to join this project proposal or to ask more information, get quickly in touch with us!
The deadline to join this consortium is 9 December.
