To identify best practices on a national level and to share them transnationally

The aim of the Empowering Migrants for Employment -project (EME) is to identify best practices on a national level enhancing the employment of migrants and supporting the recognition and valorisation of their talents and to share them between project partners on the transnational level. In order to identify the best practices, the national practices will be evaluated in the EME project.


Empowering Migrants for Employment -project (EME) is a two-year European Social Fund (ESF) -project that has started in November 2018. EME is based on transnational visits to partner organisations in Belgium (EVA, Emancipatie Via Arbeid), Sweden (Arbetarnas bildningsförbund ABF, and municipality of Piteå) and Finland.
The main partner of the project is Worker´s Educational Association WEA of Finland. The other project partners from Finland are Tampere Adult Education Centre (TAKK), Institute of Adult Education in Helsinki (HELAO) and Silta-Valmennus Association in Tampere. Tampere University is responsible for the comparative and evaluative study of the project together with Free University of Brussels (Vrije Universiteit Brussel, VUB) and European Minds (Sweden).
