During the Roma Summit on 4 April 2014 Director General Danielsson announced the Award for Roma Integration, to be organised to raise visibility of the existing challenges faced by Roma in the enlargement countries, of the invaluable contributions NGOs make to assist Roma communities and of the work of the European Union in support of Roma inclusion as one of its priority areas on fundamental rights. 

D3 and ELARG Roma Adviser, whom the European Commission put in charge of the Award, has requested TACSO to provide logistical and organisational support for the event and to organise a Study Tour to Brussels for Award nominees from each country.

Overall, in addition to participation at the Roma Award Ceremony, this Study Tour also aimed to provide opportunities for successful projects and initiatives from Western Balkans and Turkey to meet their European counterparts – civil initiatives and organisations located in Brussels and relevant European Commission representatives –increasing chances for their collaboration on future projects.
