Progettazione Europea


e attività di progettazione europea rappresentano un'opportunità importante per noi, in quanto ci permettono di collaborare con partner internazionali e di realizzare progetti innovativi che hanno un impatto significativo sulle comunità locali e globali. Grazie ai finanziamenti europei, siamo in grado di sviluppare progetti di ricerca, innovazione e sviluppo sostenibile. Lavoriamo a stretto contatto con un network di partner europei provenienti da diverse aree e settori, unendo le nostre competenze per affrontare le sfide e raggiungere obiettivi comuni.

In questa sezione, potrai esplorare una panoramica dei progetti europei a cui abbiamo partecipato.


According to the European Demographic Bulletin prepared by Eurostat, during the period from 2010 to 2019, immigration of both foreign citizens (inside and outside the EU) and national citizens returning to their country of origin has increased in all States members, except in Italy. The arrival of foreigners has led to a significant increase in ethnic and cultural diversity in the EU, which today has a mosaic of people of different origins, which represents an unprecedented social change. Regarding the European Law, the Treaty of the European Union and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union in articles 21, 22 and 35, which are directly related to migration and health, highlight the fundamental rights by those of us who fight by achieving the objectives of the project: non-discrimination, cultural diversity and equal access to health resources. In addition, the Treaty of the European Union, in the general provisions, states "The Union will combat social exclusion and discrimination and promote justice and social protection...”. According to this background, the general objective of OPEN SCHOOLS project is to design and develop specific training/education programme for immigrant parents and children, focusing on the acquisition of key competences and soft skills for social inclusion and well-being through the methodology of Collaborative Comics Storytelling. Specifically, the programme will be aimed at the acquisition of soft skills and language competences but also cultural/ICT/social and civic competences through the exploitation of the emotional dimension of training. These competences will also provide migrants parents and children opportunities for public voice (providing information on access to social services, on access to communication and rights and responsibilities), which are fundamental for a real social inclusion in the host community.

Abstract - TRUsting Europe

The objective of the TRUE project is that of raise awareness and foster and promote informed knowledge on the actions and policies designed and implemented thanks to the mechanism of the Cohesion Policy. The scope is that of diffuse correct and widespread information highlighting the impact that these concrete measures have effectively had on citizens, institutions and the territories; increasing the visibility and positive impact that Cohesion Policies and Tools have on the every day’s life of European Citizens with particular attention to concrete support such as those offered in the field of sustainable economic growth and boosting occupation. EU institutions and policies have been for long perceived as distant and generally viewed as an obscure, hyper specialistic far away theme regarding political and economic agreements decided in Brussels, and of direct interest only to the expert’s view. This underlying attitude of disinterest and ignorance has accompanied for many years everything that had the label “EU”. Reasons for this are various, and they go from National political disinterest, which failed to sparkle the interest of citizens on the theme, to the recent phenomenon of social media misrepresentations and fake news diffusion, to the objective difficulty for MA, which are administrative bodies, to undertake a professional communication campaign targeted at the various population strata and able to both communicate and engage. The capacity to promote civic engagement and active involvement has represented another weak point in the relationship between this abstract body called “EU” and the living, flesh and bone citizens, It is known that EU fundings are much needed tools, used for investments and programs, that the resources available are consistent, and that they finance a wide range of interventions, structural, infrastructural, social and economic. However, at the same time, persists the lack of a clear understanding of how, through which mechanism, and with what political/decisional weight, can citizens engage and actively and effectively participate to the decision making process.
