Job Shadowing

The EPIC project carried out a matchmaking activity to pair each city in the project (normally composed of one local authority and one NGO) with expertise in a sector relevant to the priorities identified by another city that needs support to improve their capacities in the same area. The matchmaking activity was based on an 8-month research analysis that resulted in the publication of the EPIC “Unsettling integration research report” in 2020, and the subsequent identification of priorities for each partner according to that baseline analysis.

This capacity building activity, where partners shared practical and technical information, tips and knowledge, had as a main component a job shadowing city-to-city exchange. The videos below illustrate the different EPIC cities good pratice that were shared during the job shadowing and that are generating the basis for transferring successful integration services to another territories through the 8 pilot projects EPIC is implementing during 2022.
