The Erasmus+ SENTIM project explored, promoted and created new employment opportunities for immigrants in the scope of the 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 the 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.
Outputs of the project
- Analysis of the state of social economy in Spain, Italy, Greece, and Slovenia
- A collection of examples and good practices of social economy initiatives
- Interviews and workshops with immigrants with the aim to assess their interests and entrepreneurial competencies
- online platform with e-courses and e-tools for future entrepreneurs and trainers that enable them to explore entrepreneurial interests and competencies, implement entrepreneurial training and provide additional support to immigrants and other people at risk of social exclusion.
