Existing experiences will be evaluated to establish best practices in the project and innovative pedagogical content will be developed collectively based on the basis drawn from them. Examples of the difficulties encountered in projects aiming at the integration of young immigrants will also be collected, and pitfalls to be avoided with "hints and tips" will be revealed.
