HomeLab project has come to an end in September 2019. The three year project combined integrated support services for vulnerable groups with the analysis and evaluation of innovative service provision. The project’s closing conference was organised in Budapest by consortium coordinator Metropolitan Research Institute in 26-27 September. Presenters and participants gathered from the Visegrad countries, the European Commission, and beyond.
On the conference, the project coordinators and the chief methodology expert of Budapest Institute presented the conceptual and methodological underpinning of the project, while the representatives of pilot implementer NGOs reflected on the activities, challenges, and the various service provision models they established over the past years. Thematic sessions addressed innovation in housing and employment, integrated social service provision, and the lessons learned for public policy on the local and national levels – and recommendations for the EU scale.
The detailed summary of the sessions, with the key lessons, recommendations summarized, and some additional photos was sent out in the project’s final Newsletter to key dissemination partners, among them members of HomeLab’s Advisory Board. The Newsletter is also available for the general public – click here to download.
