Former TUM students on Google.org Impact Challenge finals
The integration-focused app “Integreat” has become an integral part of many refugees and asylum seekers’s lives in Germany while looking for information about offices, documents and requirements for their settlement in the country. The tool developed by the Augsburg-based company Digitalfabrik gGmbH, an associate of Tür an Tür, an organization focused on providing relief and opportunities for immigrants and refugees in Germany, is being developed and distributed in collaboration with the city of Augsburg by former Technical University of Munich (TUM) students.
“Integreat” is being accessed over 2800 times a month and is being shared with 40 other German cities. The app includes not only information on bureaucracy, but also German language assistance and an in-depth integration with job pools and employers while being completely open source and free of charge.
The project has recently taken part in the “Google.org Impact Challenge” alongside other 110 ideas. The challenge involves projects from the entire country which are focused on social change, culture and the environment – it aims to incentivize good ideas in this spectrum by providing training and funding for participants. “Integreat” has already made into the final stages of the challenge, earning the project €250.000.
More information about the app (in German) can be found here.
