User Group

Source: Caritas
The WELCOME User Group is a community of relevant stakeholders from different areas of expertise including:
  • End users who directly use WELCOME to support themselves or their relatives.
  • Professionals who directly use WELCOME to get information about migrants and refugees or related cultural aspects.
  • Professional provider of social services.
  • Social workers working in public services and NGOs.

They all will be informed about the latest WELCOME project progress and developments.

One of the main goals for this User Group is to include their members into the evaluation of the project results (after specific agreements), to test the project tools and provide feedback. They will also be included in discussions about the project to create synergies for the possible exploitation of the project results, the development of business models, partnerships and more. Any contributions from this User Group to obtain the improvement of the project objectives are welcome.

If you are interested in joining the WELCOME User Group, please contact with Leo Wanner, coordinator of WELCOME project: leo.wanner@upf.edu
