WORK in stations

Professional integration in and around European stations

‘WORK in stations’ is a project financed by the European Social Funds of which ENSIE is partner.


Objective

With Agence nouvelle des Solidarités actives as promoter, this project aims to develop economic cooperations and to build new professional integration types from the big European capitals stations. Indeed, stations are places of stationing and meeting of people in exclusion situation but also the basis of important economic flows. Stations are thus an ideal subject to create professional integration systems.

Three stations participate in the project in Brussels (Brussels Central Station), Paris (Paris North East) and Roma (Roma Termini) and three types of actors are working together: local public authorities, railway enterprises and actors of the work integration. The objective is to create models of innovative cooperation in the framework of integration around the economic territory of stations.
