ConnectIEM survey has been launched on October 10th!
The project is comissioned by commissioned by JRC-IPTS. The survey opened on October 10th and will continue until the end
of the year. Anyone who is part of the immigrant community is invited to
participate by filling in the questionnaire at http://www.15minutescloser.com.
information and communications technologies have great potential to help
immigrant communities participate more fully in society, through improved
learning, social life, and employment. In order to determine the best policies
to help achieve these goals, the EU has funded ConnectIEM, a research project
focused on obtaining, for the first time, statistically representative and
cross-country comparable data on the information and communication technologies
(ICT) skills, access and usage of the main migration groups living in the
following 8 EU Member States: Austria, Czech Republic, Ireland, Italy, Latvia,
the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom.
The project will explore the relationship
between new technologies and integration processes of migrant populations, and
to develop evidence-based policy recommendations aimed at improving the
contribution of ICTs to the participation of immigrant communities in society.
This project was commissioned by the European Commission as part of its efforts
to design innovative integration policies supported by the use of ICT and to
fight against digital exclusion in all segments of society. The information
from the survey will help the EU design innovative integration policies.
For anyone who is part of the immigrant
community, the survey is located at http://www.15minutescloser.com (or
