Workshop sessions will be complemented by seminars aimed at exchanging aspects of the research carried out so far – in relation to both the reception of migrants and refugees in selected EU cities, and current learning & teaching practices in the areas of design and hospitality. These will be supported by visits to Sheffield-based non-profits working on migration issues, and talks by experts in the field.
