Aim of the project: the FORINER project, which was launched on the 1st of January 2016, was initiated to provide EU foreign national inmates in EU prisons with access to qualitative, low threshold, certified learning opportunities provided by home institutions but received by the inmate in an EU foreign prison. To this end a structure will be designed and tested which allows education providers to reach out to their national prisoners in other EU countries, at the same quality standard as the home offer. This website will provide you with an update on the progress of the project, along with the contact details of all members involved and locations on where we will be hosting events.
EU funding programme: in July 2015 the FORINER project was selected by the European Commission to be funded through the European programme Erasmus+
