SOFIA DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION was founded as non-profit organization with the decision 348
of the Sofia Municipal Council to work for the sustainable development of the capital.


The highly anticipated annual meeting for the SYNCLUSIVE research project took place from 21st to 22nd March 2024 in Helsinki, Finland, and it was a resounding success!

The meeting brought together a significant number of participants, exceeding 25 attendees from various esteemed institutions and organisations - research partners, living lab implementers, reflective partners and advisory board members. Throughout the event, the participants engaged in vibrant discussions, presented research findings, and exchanged valuable insights related to the labour market and the vulnerable groups, the realist evaluation method, the ENGINE model and the Living Labs in Sofia, Kokkola, Amersfoort and Portugal. The diverse range of perspectives and expertise contributed to the richness of the discussions, igniting new ideas and potential avenues for further exploration.

As we reflect on the success of this annual meeting, we are grateful for the dedication and hard work of everyone involved, including the host team of FIOH, speakers, presenters, and attendees. Their commitment and contributions played a crucial role in making this event such a success.

Moving forward, we are excited about the potential outcomes of the research that will materialise during the remaining nearly 3 years of the project and potential collaborations that may emerge. The next annual meeting is planned for March 2025 in Sofia, followed by the midterm workshop in Brussels in June 2025.
