The "Welcome Center" project at Leuphana University Lüneburg is funded by the Fachkräfteallianz Nordostniedersachsen within the framework of the European Social Fund (ESF) from 01.06.2020 to 31.05.2022. The project is based on the results of the 2018-2020 pilot project "Development of a Welcome Center Lüneburg Network".

The objective of the project is to further develop a regional service point "Welcome Center" in order to support local companies in recruiting international employees and to promote the social and professional integration of these employees and their families. Furthermore, international students receive assistance for better access to the regional labour market .

Target groups of the project are professionals from abroad, international scholars and students, as well as host institutions and local companies in the Lüneburg region as well as the surrounding areas Harburg, Uelzen, Celle, Heidekreis and Lüchow-Dannenberg.

The Welcome Center service point provides support in all issues concerning the recruitment and stay of international professionals and assistance to new employees upon their arrival.
