(general description for the LearningMigration Network)
The main thematic area of the network is Learning About Migration and
Intecultural Relations ((LearningMigration). This means sharing experience and

increasing number of immigrants into Europe, and also the greater movement of

the LearningMigration network has been organised into four transnational seminar
groups of (a) local schools, (b) teacher training institutions, (c) institutions

educational challenges in a comparative and sharing manner (an indenpendent
group for NGOs will not be set up).
Each of the four thematic seminar groups will be active in CLUSTERING networks,
projects and initiatives in the area of migration and interculturral relations,
thereby fostering long term collaboration with other networks, projects, and
