One of the main objectives of the LION project is to create an informal network between the Third Country Nationals and the local society so as to promote cooperative mechanisms and strengthen interaction between them.

To do so, a series of workshops were organized for hospital staff and police officers, in order to pave the way for the host society and for the establishment of good relations with Third Country Nationals.
