Actiris Coordination Platform

Bringing together stakeholders for labour market integration of newcomers in the Brussels-Capital Region

The project "Technical support for the development of a regional coordination platform concerning labour market integration of newcomers in the Brussels-Capital Region" is an 18‑month initiative funded by the European Union (EU) through the Structural Reform Support Programme aimed at improving coordination between stakeholders active in the field of labour market integration of newcomers in the Brussels-Capital Region (BCR).

IOM Belgium and Luxembourg supports the Brussels regional employment agency, Actiris, in developing and establishing a coordination platform that is sustainable and user-friendly. It is envisioned that the platform will consist of an in-person and digital component, consolidating a network of stakeholders while facilitating communication and exchange amongst them.

Improved coordination between stakeholders will ultimately lead to a better labour market participation rate among newcomers.

Needs-based approach

Throughout the five stages of the project depicted below, various activities will lead to the development and establishment of the coordination platform. To ensure the platform's sustainability and added value, the involvement of stakeholders active in the field of labour market integration in the BCR will be at the center of each of these stages. Creating ownership over the platform by actively including the voices, ideas and recommendations of the stakeholders will play a vital role in designing a user-friendly and functional platform tailored to the needs and wishes of these actors.
