Verein Multikulturell – Tyrolean Integration Center is a non-governmental organisation founded in 1993, to enhance the intercultural dialogue and education. Our main objectives are to promote professional, social and cultural integration of migrants and refugees. To reach this goal we closely cooperate with the State Government and other State institutions like the Chamber of Commerce, job centers, schools as well as social organizations and societies.
Verein Multikulturell has been an important member of several integration networks in Austria for more than 20 years. Recently, it became a member of the Integrations Forum Tirol, where the most important organisations in this field are organised.
For several years we have been involved in a variety of projects. We have tremendous experience in designing and leading national and international projects (Daphne, LLP, fundamental rights) or taking up the active role of a transnational project partnerships. Currently, we are engaged in a number of activities and offer a variety of services (all services are multilingual: DE, EN, TR, BKS, and for Arabic and Farsi we use translators) Our target groups are refugees coming to Austria and migrants living in Austria, in order to promote their opportunities for integration and residence in the host society.
