CARDET participated in the International Forum under the title “Digital Tools for Inclusion of Refugees and Migrants” that was held in Madrid on the 30th of May, 2018. During the event, representatives from the Spanish National entities and organisations, such as the Community of Madrid, the Ministry of Employment and Social Security, Caritas, the Autonomous University of Madrid and PROVIVIENDA Association presented the work that has been done for the integration of asylum seekers and vulnerable populations in Spain. One of the best practices that was introduced was the “Digital Inclusion” project that aims to provide an elearning course for the inclusion of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in the European host societies. CARDET has developed the elearning platform in collaboration with project partners from six European countries. The platform was demonstrated by Ms. Ourania Miliou, the representative of CARDET who was responsible for the instructional work, and the assessment tool of the platform was presented by Dr. Stefanos Spaneas, who is an Associate Professor at the University of Nicosia, Cyprus.
