Registrations are now open for the FOCUS Final Conference – Living Well Together! Join us on 1-2 June 2022 at La Tricoterie in Brussels.

The FOCUS Final Conference will showcase the FOCUS results:

It will take stock of the past decade of dynamic integration and discuss with other integration practitioners from civil society, academia and policy how the FOCUS results can be implemented in practice – also in the current context of increased migration from Ukraine.

  • Findings from our comprehensive research study exploring socioeconomic and sociopsychological integration in four countries
  • Accounts from the FOCUS case studies
  • Workshops to experience our Living Well Together Resource and the FOCUS Approach to Dynamic Integration

  • A marketplace to discover projects and initiatives

The event will take place at La Tricoterie, a unique event and cultural venue in the heart of Brussels (near Gare du Midi).
