MATILDE is a 3-year project funded by EU Horizon 2020 facility, focusing on the impact of migration on the local development of rural and mountain regions. The project develops and tests a transdisciplinary conceptual and methodological framework for a multidimensional assessment of the economic and social impacts of Third Country Nationals (TNCs). MATILDE is led by the University of Eastern Finland with Jussi P.Laine as the Project Coordinator and Andrea Membretti as the Scientific Head.
As MATILDE, our ambition is to rethink and re-represent the active role of immigrants and their descendants in rural and mountain regions of Europe. Join MATILDE Photo Contest and tell us how #HeartofEurope is more prosperous, more colorful and more diverse with immigration!
