Compass - Setting Migrants and Refugees in the Right Direction

Key Action 2: Strategic Partnership Projects
AGREEMENT n° 2017-1-DE02-KA204-004237

Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships for adult education  

General description

COMPASS is an Erasmus+ funded project led by IB Brandenburg Nordost (Germany).

This project aims to provide direct support to both refugees and asylum seekers along with migrants, agencies and volunteers who support them. This project will provide a lasting and adaptable tool to deal with early contact language issues rated as one of the most important problems by both groups. The project will use innovative technology to provide multiway translation of key words and phrases covering the major issues as defined by both refugees and support agencies.

Facts and figures

Mass migration is an issue within Europe. Europe’s refugee crisis has been at its worst since the end of world war 2. The situation facing most migrants when they arrive in Europe is chaotic.  Local services are usually overrun and there is a particular need to tackle language barriers, which is the key aim of this project.

Main objectives

We will develop a platform (available for both PC and phone) that contains basic vocabulary, including phrases particularly relevant to migrants and the situations they face (1000 words and phrases in total) in the most widely spoken migrant languages (Arabic, Persian (Dair/Farsi) Pashto, Kurdish, Albanian) and the most relevant EU languages (German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Turkish)

Meetings schedule

Main contributions of the project:

  • Should easily achieve 2000 refugee/migrant users.
  • 200 refugees/migrants will be involved in the testing of materials and will have early access to the website.
  • New migrants support agencies, not currently involved, will be engaged giving at least to 80 staff members the opportunity to use the platform.
