KIM (01/2013 - 12/2014)
Funded through the European Union’s Programme for Lifelong Learning the KIM project mainly aimed to improvet and promote the social inclusion and gender equality of migrants in European countries. In times of dramatically reduced public expenditure of European countries especially for social matters, the inclusion and support of migrants is facing considerable challenges. However this situation leads to a double burden. Migrants receive less support and are less able to help themselves and integrate into society. Therefore in the long run, the dramatic cuts in social expenditure and reduced services and support will have a considerable negative impact on societies and lead to enormous problems. Nevertheless at the moment migrants are lacking possibilities for inclusion and especially gaining the important key competences and skills for better integration into labour market and society in general.

Stamp to Europe (01/2011 - 12/2012)
The Austrian and German project partners targeted 2011 to evidence the advantages of and potential for transnational collaboration at a local level and to actively engage with as many municipalities as possible in the target regions Styria (AT) and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (DE). As a result the participating municipalities became familiar with the EU programme Europe for Citizens and with the principle of town twinning projects. Thanks to EU fundings European town twinning projects can be created, revitalised or continued. Project activities included a series of events relating to the support programme Europe for Citizens and the application and realisation of twinning agreements as well as a "Flying Project Office" offering free consultation concerning the evaluation of project ideas and complete filling in the application made by experts visiting municipalities in person.
