In a key step towards advancing the STEAMigPOWER project, SEAL Cyprus hosted the second project meeting on November 24, 2023. The meeting brought together all partner institutions either face-to-face or remotely, marking a significant collaborative effort to drive the objectives forward.
The meeting, held in Nicosia, Cyprus, addressed critical discussions surrounding the completed materials and outlined the next steps. This collaborative effort underscores the dedication of each partner to the common goal of integrating migrants through education, skill development, and empowerment. With representatives from UMinho (Portugal), Università degli Studi di Perugia (Italy), Solidarity Foundation of the University of Barcelona (Spain), Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece), Middle East Technical University (Turkey), and SEAL Cyprus (Cyprus), the diverse consortium tackled key aspects of the project’s development.
As the STEAMigPOWER project just completed its first year of the three-year execution period, the meeting provided a platform to reflect on achievements and strategize for the future. The initiative, funded with a substantial budget of €400,000, demonstrates a commitment to fostering Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) education for migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. This collaborative effort underscores the dedication of each partner to the common goal of integrating migrants through education, skill development, and empowerment.
As the STEAMigPOWER project moves into its second year, the momentum gained from the meeting in Cyprus sets the stage for continued success and meaningful impact. The commitment of each partner institution remains steady, marking a collective step towards creating a positive change in the lives of migrants and refugees through the power of education.
