The Integration Project is a transversal unique workpackage that includes evaluation, dissemination and integration activities. Its main goal is to integrate the findings that are progressively obtained from the six projects that compose Cluster 1, Cluster 2 and Cluster 3. In order to guarantee that the goal of integration is fully accomplished, this project includes three different types of activities. First, evaluation activities will monitor and oversee the project’s development and the fulfilment of the objectives. Second, dissemination activities of the results from each cluster and the final results of the project, and finally, integration activities of the results to facilitate the accumulation and advancement of the knowledge, and to orient it towards the elaboration of educational strategies that contribute to social cohesion.

2. Lectures aimed at undergraduates, masters students, PhD students, faculty members, researchers, and university teachers.

3. Seminars and conferences aimed at policy makers and members of administrations.

4. Training seminars (within the framework of WP5).

5. Publications.

Second year

In the second year of the project, as part of the Integrated Project, several dissemination activities were carried out. One of the main activities was to ensure that the Includ-ed website was updated. This updating was carried out periodically and involved the contributions of all of the partners, and the project progress was gradually incorporated into it. In this way, the development of the project was communicated to the general public, as well as information on the results obtained.

Another important dissemination activity was the Includ-ed Public Presentation held on the 28th of October 2008 in the Representation Office of the European Commission and the European Parliament in Barcelona. Similarly, it is important to highlight the creation of 5 On-line Monographs as a result of Project 2 .
