Learning Exchange Grants

Learning Exchange Grants are an instrument to enable district representatives, who are part of the program, to visit other districts in order to facilitate the transfer of knowledge related to challenges, solutions and practices of integration policy. Learning Exchange Grants can be requested at the Program Office of Land.Zuhause.Zukunft. District representatives are free to choose their destination, the subject of their visit and the experts they want to engage with.

The visiting district organizes a program together with the hosting municipality to engage in fruitful exchange. Travel costs of the visiting district are covered by the program
