Working Towards an Inclusive Future For All
It is crucial for better integration of (im)migrants to improve the
‘easiness to exercise’ their rights!
HELPING IMMIGRANTS UNDERSTAND THEIR RIGHTS
A Bit of Background
We are a European H2020 project and our aim is a simple one - to combine co-creation and AI technology to make it easier for immigrants to understand and access the services they are entitled to.
Bringing together immigrants, the public sector and private organisations, easyRights will develop a platform that will provide personalised, context-aware information to its users, taking into account background, demographics and language skills. The platform will support immigrants in their search for responses for different needs in a manner that saves time for both migrants and for social service staff and cutting costs for the public administration
The easyRights platform will be developed and deployed in four pilot locations (Birmingham, Larissa, Palermo and Malaga). Follow our pilots as we begin our easyRights journey.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
easyRights will be trialled in the following locations...
