Synergy to Develop a Monitoring Platform for the EU Facility for Refugees

Synergy has been awarded a contract by the European Commission (EC) to implement the “Online Monitoring Platform for the Facility for Refugees” for two executive agencies of EC namely the Directorate-General for Neighborhood and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR) and the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO) in Brussels, Belgium.

This system will support the systematic production of information to enable DG NEAR and DG ECHO to efficiently coordinate their actions and enable them to share clear and precise information with others.

The European Union Facility for Refugees was set up in 2015 in response to the European Council’s call for significant additional funding to support refugees. It provides a joint coordination mechanism, designed to ensure that the needs of refugees and host communities are addressed in a comprehensive and coordinated manner. The support seeks to improve conditions for refugees as part of the EU’s comprehensive approach to addressing the refugee crisis inside and outside the EU.
