How to facilitate the integration of migrants and refugees with the help of digital technology?

Submitted on 29/09/2020

This is the ambition of the European project NADINE with the involvement of Damien Lolive, Arnaud Delhay and Gwénolé Lecorvé, all three Associate Professor at the Université de Rennes 1 and members of the Expression research team.


What does this project consist of?

The objective of the NADINE project is to develop a new way of integrating migrants and refugees thanks to solutions that automatically adapt to the specificities of each one.
Starting from the observation that one of the main factors of integration of migrants/refugees is their ability to work, the objective of the NADINE project is ""To give back to migrants and refugees their dignity by offering them a decent job with a decent salary".

Concretely how to implement this?

The NADINE project consists, through a platform, in:

  • provide functionalities for the evaluation of skills, especially written and oral language skills
  • create tailor-made training programs to adapt existing skills to the needs of host countries, and a career guidance system
  • provide migrants with tailored information and referrals to social services, careers and administrative procedures in their new host country.
  • to create data available to public administration agencies for a better organization of migration flows.

If you want to know more, a question-and-answer session (on Zoom) will take place on Tuesday 6 October in the framework of the European Week of Regions and cities.
