Funded through the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF), MAX (Maximizing Migrants’ Contribution to Society) is bringing together 20 partners, that is 15 local organisations from 12 EU Member States and five EU-level partners.

The aim of MAX is to strengthen – with innovative means and techniques – the existing fabric of networks and parties involved in providing a fairer and more accurate portrayal of migrants, focusing on the contribution they make to society, and providing the tools and guidelines to do so, in a flexible manner that can change over time according to needs.

Leading a consortium of seven partners, AEIDL has started the implementation of the Young Migrants Capacity Building (YMCB) project, funded through the COSME Programme.

YMCB aims to create a coordinated programme of action to provide young migrants with the means to develop their own business according to entrepreneurial knowledge made accessible through a journey of education and training, mentoring, networking and access to finances.
