After three and a half years of fieldwork research and development, our consortium is happy to announce that the University of Bologna will host a two-day conference to mark the ending of the H2020 PERCEPTIONS project. PERCEPTIONS aims to identify and understand migrants’ narratives, images and perceptions of Europe, as well as the way they are distributed via different channels.

The PERCEPTIONS final event aims to bring together policymakers, academics, law enforcement agents, migrants, asylum-seekers, governmental, non-governmental, international, civil society organizations, and the general public to discuss the project findings. The event is open to the general public and we are cordially inviting all stakeholders and sister projects to participate.

You will have the opportunity to share your perspectives and experience the materials and resources we have painstakingly developed in the past three years. We have also allocated time to network with other experts in the field, discussing future research & practice opportunities!

In case you might want to plan your travel in advance, here are some suggestions of hotels to reach the venue: options 1, 2, 34, 5 and 6.

More detailed info on the event program will be shared as soon as possible, both via e-mail and the PERCEPTIONS Web Platform.

We can’t wait to meet you all in Bologna!

The event will be in presence and will take place on the 19th and 20th January 2023 in Bologna, Italy, at Palazzo Hercolani – Strada Maggiore, 45. To organize the event at best of our possibilities, we warmly invite you to register before the 30th of November.
