DG Home of the European Commission confirmed this week that the Cities-Grow project application was approved and would take place from 2017. This is a great news for EUROCITIES and for the 16 European cities involved in this call. 

More than ever in the context of the refugee crisis, European city leaders and decision makers need pragmatic, relevant and practical advice to address migrant integration challenges and develop effective migrant integration strategies to help reap on the potential of immigration.

More than ever in the context of the refugee crisis, European city leaders and decision makers need pragmatic, relevant and practical advice to address migrant integration challenges and develop effective migrant integration strategies to help reap on the potential of immigration.

The CITIES-GROW (“Integration of migrants through economic activity in cities”) project will be coordinated by EUROCITIES (the network of major cities in Europe) with the support of Migration Policy Group, Migration Work-CIC and Migration Policy Institute, and will involve the active participation of 16 major cities in Europe:

Athens, Barcelona, Birmingham, Brighton & Hove, Dresden, Gdansk, Ghent, Helsinki, Lisbon, Munich, Nantes, Nicosia, Riga, Rotterdam, Tampere, Utrecht

CITIES-GROW will be a continuation of the ImpleMentoring project and will be built on the mentoring methodology which it successfully developed, tested and improved. This project built on the experience and success of other previous EIF funded EUROCITIES local integration projects (MIXITIES, DIVE and INTI-Cities) by shifting the focus from peer reviews and standard-setting towards policy implementation and concrete actions.
