Welcome to project LIB(e)RO!

Helping minor refugees getting started in Europe, learning a new language and finding their own way in a new social and cultural context – this is the aim of setting-up an e-learning-platform within project LIB(e)RO.

To further the integration of minor refugees, the project partners from Austria, Germany and Greece aim at making use of the potential of libraries as socially inclusive learning spaces, which provide ideal conditions for language acquisition as well as intercultural understanding.

On the following pages you will be able to find further information about the structure of this website and how to navigate through it, about the project itself as well as about the project partners.


2. Transnational Project Meeting in Passau: On 23rd and 24th of November, 2017, the LIB(e)RO project partners met in Passau. Together, they discussed the structure and contents of the platform and decided upon nexts steps regarding the implementation of the project. During the next months, contents will be uploaded onto the platform, which will then be ready for the starting of the testing phase in late spring 2018. During this testing phase the LIB(e)RO learning platform will then be used and evaluated in the actual work with librarians and refugees in libraries.
