The INTEGRIM research training programme aims to establish a multi-site network of early stage researchers (predominantly PhD students) at the eight partner institutions fostering a multidisciplinary research career on International Migration and Integration within the European context. The network will apply a qualification framework with a compatible set of qualifications/knowledge/skills across the national systems for graduates of the INTEGRIM programme. Besides, the INTEGRIM research training programme will address the integration challenges that migration flows pose to policy makers, civil society and industrial partners in Europe. The mission of the INTEGRIM Research-Training Project is to make an innovative contribution to academic knowledge on the concept of integration as a key factor for the future cohesion of European societies. Integration constitutes an essential element of European policies concerning migration, as can be observed in the most relevant official documents on the matter.
