The fourth SEiSMiC takeaway highlights examples of resilience and innovation in Turkey, Germany and Sweden, countries that have all recently had to cope with a huge influx of refugees from Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East. It focuses on a new map app being developed by residents of a refugee centre in Berlin, and a Swedish solution to speed up the procurement of housing for migrants.
The three-year SEiSMiC project supports and adds a social dimension to JPI Urban Europe. It is funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration, and is implemented with the participation of the REC’s Smart Cities and Mobility Topic Area.
