EU Launches New Call for Proposals to Support Migrants Entrepreneurship (UK)

The European Commission has launched a new €1.5 million call for proposals to promote entrepreneurship amongst the migrant population in Europe.

The economic integration of migrants is one of the priorities of the approach to migration. It is crucial to empower migrants and refugees to develop the skills and to get access to knowledge and support schemes that can enable them to build a solid livelihood, and also to create added value. This should include the possibility of becoming entrepreneurs and thus contribute to further job creation. Entrepreneurship is one of the ways to ensure the integration and the economic independence of migrants. The objective of the call is to support the networking of organisations working in the field of migrant entrepreneurship while facilitating mutual learning, the exchange of experiences and good practice, the exploitation of synergies and the emergence of strategic collaborations. The maximum grant per project will be €375,000 and the grant is limited to a maximum reimbursement rate of 90% of eligible costs.

The closing date for applications is the 20th December 2016.
