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.

LIB(e)RO in action:

On 6th February, 2018, the team of the Jean Monnet Chair for European Politics (University of Passau) presented LIB(e)RO during the seminar Integration³ - "Understanding politics, experiencing Europe". The seminar was addressed to the participants of three language and integration courses from Passau, their teachers as well as Master students of University of Passau. Additionally, the event offered the opportunity to test for the first time the LIB(e)RO eLearning Unit "My Europe".
