 The purpose of the project is to reinforce and support the economic and financial inclusion of migrants and mostly the aspetc of migrant entrepreneurship  in Milan, Rome and Naples.

The project is addressed to two existing Territorial Laboratories for the Financial Inclusion of Migrants, in Milan and Rome (developed since 2014 and organized by CeSPI within the Observatory for Migrants' Financial Inclusion)and it will start preliminary activities in Naples. 

The Territorial Labs represent an open community of selected experts, including all local public and private stakeholders. The Labs offer a place/moment for knowledge sharing, networking and (local/national) policy advisory.

 The project intends to reinforce the role of the Labs in the selected cities, by involving them in a participatory process of:

A) internal discussion and policy orientation in order to improve and disseminate updated knowledge on migrant entrepreneurship and finally produce a shared position paper;

B)critical mapping and possible improvement of current services directed to support the financial inclusion of migrants, especially migrant entrepreneurs. The activity, when possible, will suggest likely improvements and synergies among operators in order to complement the services offered.
