Techfugees HQ is bringing a small group of selected tech innovators and social entrepreneurs that worked on Techfugees challenges and won our hackathons to France for a field-research trip to the three main refugee centres in Northern Paris managed by Emmaus Solidarité.

The purpose of the visit is to collect information on the way local authorities and non-profits welcome and resettle asylum seekers, refugees and migrants and ideate how technology could be used to support and improve the process.

If you are interested in participating: please email us at with the title “Visite Centres Emmaus 22 Juillet” and in the body please specify: your contact details (name, phone number, organisation/project name, URL) with a clear statement of your motives and your expectations for how the visit can help your project or your impact work.
