Led by a group of 13 organizations from 10 European countries, covering southern, central, and northern Europe, and Balkans, RES-MOVE is all about using coworking spaces and places where people work together to help migrants to integrate. 

Collaborative spaces, coworking hubs, fab-labs, setups within public libraries and cafes offer promising avenues for the employment inclusion of skilled migrants.  And on the grand scheme of things, inclusive coworking can be a long-term solution for labour inclusion and an immediate help during emergencies. 

For whom? 

RES-MOVE initiative specifically targets freelancers, craft-skilled migrants, start-up entrepreneurs, and knowledge workers. 


Building upon the recent successes of coworking spaces in supporting Ukrainian refugees displaced by conflict, RES-MOVE envisions concrete outcomes: 

  • Establishing exemplary collaborative spaces across 11 implementation territories, serving as showcases for effective migrant integration through skill alignment with local labour market demands. 
  • Pioneering innovative pathways to job inclusion, benefiting at least 1,100 migrants, with a dedicated focus on gender parity. 
  • Providing stakeholders with an operational model and valuable research insights to facilitate the replication and scalability of successful integration practices. This includes the establishment of a Transnational Network of Inclusive Coworking Spaces to ensure the enduring impact of our project beyond its initial phase. 


Some amazing spaces are already helping, RES-MOVE will take things to the next level: 

  • RES-MOVE aims for „Inclusive Coworking Spaces“ to always have pathways for migrants to find jobs. 
  • The project also helps migrants start their own businesses by tailoring activities just for them. 
  • RES-MOVE is making sure to get more women into coworking spaces and help them find jobs that match their skills. 


RES-MOVE isn’t just about local projects. We’re working together across borders to make sure everyone benefits. Coworking is a global phenomenon, so we’re using common tools and models to make a bigger impact. 

And this isn’t just for us. All European countries are dealing with labour shortages, and coworking can help. We’re sharing our results through activities such as MOOCs and our Transnational Network, so everyone can get involved.
