This topic aims to include refugees and other migrants in the labour market at an early stage and at the appropriate skill level.
Proposals should address one or more of the following specific objectives:
- strengthen cooperation between labour market actors and migrants themselves at EU, regional, national and local levels by creating and/or reinforcing transnational partnerships on labour market inclusion;
- advance effective inclusion of migrants in the labour market both early on after their arrival in the EU and at a level adequate to their qualifications, including by mobilising all stakeholders who can help and by promoting/ building on the EU tools available;
- contribute to a better matching between skills, competences and qualifications of migrants that are already in the EU, on the one hand, and demand on EU labour markets (including labour shortages) on the other hand;
- promote inclusive workplaces, including by raising awareness about direct and indirect discrimination and elaborating good practice on tackling discrimination and promoting diversity in the workplace;
- promote sustainable employment conditions for migrants, in particular beneficiaries of international and temporary protection and applicants for international protection.
Expected effects and impacts
Proposals should include one or more of the following activities (non-exhaustive list):
- developing innovative approaches to labour market integration, including by promoting/building on the EU tools available;
- upscaling activities of established good practices;
- developing and providing training to stakeholders (e.g. bridging courses and on the-job training for migrants; capacity building for SMEs), building on existing good practices;
- conferences, workshops, awareness-raising and other activities to create and strengthen partnerships between key labour market actors and further refine the solutions to labour market integration for migrants at the appropriate level of qualifications.
Proposals should focus on contributing to the achievement of one or several of the following outcomes:
- sustainable networks between labour market actors at local/regional/national/European level to advance concrete aspects of labour market integration;
- tools to assess and validate migrants’ skills and qualifications, in line with employers’ needs and in a timely manner, and to match migrants’ skills with vacancies, in particular in shortage occupations, taking into account experience with existing private and public tools (e.g. EU Talent Pool Pilot, EURAXESS);
- good practices that contribute to inclusive workplaces and sustainable employment conditions for migrants;
- training methods for different labour market actors as well as migrants in need of upskilling/reskilling and/or bridging courses, including proper dissemination to all relevant stakeholders.

EGTCs), Research Institution incl. University, Small and medium-sized enterprise (SME)
Proposals must be submitted by:
- minimum four applicants (beneficiaries; not affiliated entities) from three different participating Member States
- the following entities can NOT apply as coordinator:
- profit making entities
- International Organisations
In order to be eligible, the applicants (beneficiaries and affiliated entities) must:
- be legal entities (public or private bodies)
- be established in one of the eligible countries, i.e.:
- EU Member States (including overseas countries and territories (OCTs)), excluding Denmark , countries associated to the AMIF or countries which are in ongoing negotiations for an association agreement and where the agreement enters into force before grant signature
- Natural persons are NOT eligible (with the exception of selfemployed persons, i.e. sole traders, where the company does not have legal personality separate from that of the natural person).
- International organisations are eligible and can be coordinators. International organisations can participate as co-beneficiaries regardless of their geographical location. As a result, their geographical location is irrelevant and in analogy, being based in an eligible country cannot be taken into consideration in calculating the minimum of countries within a partnership. The rules on eligible countries do not apply to them.
- Entities which do not have legal personality under their national law may exceptionally participate, provided that their representatives have the capacity to undertake legal obligations on their behalf, and offer guarantees for the protection of the EU financial interests equivalent to that offered by legal persons.
- EU bodies (with the exception of the European Commission Joint Research Centre) can NOT be part of the consortium.
- Entities composed of members may participate as ‘sole beneficiaries’ or ‘beneficiaries without legal personality'. Please note that if the action will be implemented by the members, they should also participate (either as beneficiaries or as affiliated entities, otherwise their costs will NOT be eligible).

Financial support to third parties is not allowed.
