Erasmus+ SENTIM project explored, promoted and created new employment opportunities for immigrants in the scope of social economy. The goal of the project was to develop models and good practices adjusted to the needs of immigrants (and also other people at risk of labor market discrimination and social exclusion) that have the potential to stimulate economic growth and employment creation in the frame of social economy. Project partners from Spain, Italy, Slovenia and Greece focused on finding new employment opportunities to fight against social disadvantage and to promote social cohesion.
