  2. To promote the reintegration of internally displaced persons (IDPs) into new local communities through retraining and social adaptation.
  3. To exchange of experience in retraining and social adaptation of IDPs in Ukraine and at the international level.
  4. To improve the legal framework of the Ukrainian higher education system through the recognition of microcredits as part of the practice of lifelong learning in universities.
  5. To promote cooperation between different actors to ensure social inclusion, increase the level of student employment and the quality of higher education during the social crisis.

The main target group is Ukrainian higher education institutions, which are united in a consortium.

In general, the consortium includes seven universities from Ukraine, the Leon Kazminsky Academy from Poland and the Nord University from Norway, as well as the Norwegian-Ukrainian and Polish-Ukrainian Chambers of Commerce.
