SIforREF’s main objective is to enhance significantly existing refugee integration policies on the regional and local level. Our goal is that social innovative and inclusive measures become mainstream. This is not only an exchange of good practices; our task is to  jointly design and implement methodologies and identify the social innovative conditions that must be met. The main outputs will be tools for evaluating and designing social innovative practices and pilots that result in inclusive policies.
