The MILMA project aimed at increasing migrants’ integration perspectives through access to employment, with the creation of practical experiences specifically targeted at market niches with present and future potential to create employment opportunities. The project tested an experimental formative process directly connected to the development of products and services demanded on the market through “Business Challenges” (BCs) created in specific areas identified as potential generators of employment, and co-managed by social enterprises and companies. In parallel, integration was fostered through a collaborative work between local and migrants people in the Experimental Teams of Employment and Integration within BCs Labs. This acculturation process combined with the training program based on Business Challenges was to facilitate migrants’ employability and skills acquisition in relevant market areas and to promote mutual understanding and strengthen social cohesion.

During its implementation, the UIA project has capitalised on its experience so that it can be shared with peers. The outputs displayed on this page are the result of this process.
