Who is Integration 2022 intended for?

The Integration 2022 event is intended for those working in the field of immigrant integration and refugee reception. These include third-sector operators, public authorities, municipal employees and researchers who, in the course of their work, are engaged in immigration, integration and reception and those who promote integration as decision-makers, representatives of minors, teachers, entrepreneurs, representatives of companies or active volunteers.

The Integration event is organised every two years and it is the main event for integration operators and the Integration Partnership Programme. In 2022, the Integration event will be held at Tampere Hall in Tampere. Is your municipality interested in organising the Integration event in 2024?

Join us to hear about the latest research, meet partners and learn about best practices.
