The 4th SUMIGRE partnership meeting in London


Our 4th project meeting was organised by MRC and held in London on the 6-7th Nov. 2018. We dedicated  the better  part of the meeting  to the development of the curriculum for e-Learning training in May, 2019. The curriculum aims at educators working with immigrants, asylum seekers and refugees . It includes modules on  essential topics such as the human rights of immigrants,development of  intercultural  awareness, intercultural competences and communication, cultural enterprise in  education, discrimination in education and second language teaching.  Our next  task will be to translate the curriculum into the partner languages in order to ensure its wider use by the national target groups. 

 On the 1st day of the meeting , the Protection Gap Advocates , who are asylum seekers,  participated in the meeting.They shared information about their experience and their expectations of educators who teach immigrants. It was  thought-provoking  for us all!

We also had the opportunity  to learn about  the interim evaluation and dissemination results of SUMIGRE thanks to the detailed reports by our partners BDA and BDF. We were happy to note that the good communication and the commitment of the partners were especially emphasized  in the Evaluation report ! According to the Dissemination Report , the project has been disseminated to more than 10000 people so far via various tools  and channels! This  amazing figure  shows that all of us  have been using the dissemination tools at our disposal very efficiently!



"Interculturel Awereness" Workshop


KOGED organised a thematic workshop in Izmit on 20th October to further disseminate our ongoing project SUMIGRE and its 1st intellectual output, the Migration Report( avaliable on While the primary aim of the workshop was dissemination, we also aimed to call the participants’ attention to the importance of intercultural awareness which is one of the topics of the training curriculum the SUMIGRE partners have been currently working on.The curriculum will be complete by the end of 2018 and the translated versions will be accessible on the project website next year.

The workshop was held in three consecutive sessions with a focus on culture, its layers, the importance of a)avoiding stereotypes and assumptions in real life and b) understanding of one’s own culture.

Self-reflection exercises were followed by animated discussions and the post-activity evaluation. 


SUMIGRE partners were in Prague


We held the  2nd transnational meeting of SUMIGRE   in Prague on 16-17 April 2018.Our Czech partner, Schola Empirica hosted the meeting which focused mainly on the finalised draft of the 1st intellectual output of the project: Migration Report. It will be accessible on the project website by the end of June, 2018. 

We presented our national good practice examples of a)provision of training opportunities for migrant-related educators in the partner countries  and of b)cross-sectoral collaboration in migrant-related issues. These  will  be  annexed to the Report and translated into the partner languages. 

The visits to the two migrant-related organisations, which were quite inspiring, gave us an insight into how they go about their work and what kind of services they provide for migrants.

Last but not the least at all, the meeting enabled us to exchange experience and  knowledge, share views  and monitor how the project has been proceeding.

The 3rd Transnational Meeting of SUMIGRE


Our partner, Business Development Friesland(BDF) hosted the 3rd transnational meeting of the project  in the city of Leeuwarden on the 12th-13th of  July 2018.

The primary aims of the meeting were the  overview of the project development, the activities implemented so far  and the results – mainly the completed Migration Report which is downloadable from this website-and setting up the  schedule for the next activities and tasks. The translated good practices from the partner countries are also accessible on this website.

 BDF shared the results of the evaluation of the two previous transnational meetings with the partners, the participants also shared information about their  ongoing  and upcoming dissemination activities which includes a thematic workshop by the end of the 1st project year.

The better part of the meeting was dedicated to the 2nd intellectual output of the project: Training curriculum for migrant-related educators who are the main target group of the project. We discussed the structure and the contents of the curriculum& the layout and clarified each partner organisation’s individual task.

The two guest migrant educators,  who are responsible for providing integration programmes ,  gave general information about  the situation of migrants in the Netherlands  and Dutch language education for non-Dutch migrants in the country. They also mentioned the common challenges they have to deal with in their work which led us to reflecting  on our own experiences !


The Kick-off Meeting in Turkey


SUMIGRE partners held the 1st project meeting on 18-19 January 2018 in Izmit.

After the introduction of the partner organisations, the meeting focused mainly on the aims, objectives, project management& monitoring tools, the outputs, planned activities and the expected outcomes to understand the project background, understand the criteria which will ensure our success and  understand our tasks and responsibilities and agree on certain issues.

In addition, we paid a visit to the "Al Shami Kitchen", a cooking and bakery facility provided for Syrian refugee women by Izmit Municipality, and tasted the  traditional Syrian food which they cook and sell to contribute to their family income. The walk through the Izmit Historical Corridor and other sightseeing spots was the final activity of the 2-day meeting.

The partners will meet again in April,2018 in  Prague.
