H2020 MIRROR Project

H2020 MIRROR Project

SAIL LABS Research Team recently took part in two important events of the H2020MIRROR project.

The Workshop on Contemporary Challenges in Migration, held on the 26th of November, promoted an interactive exchange of ideas between policy makers and the 14 consortium partners of the project. The aim of the meeting was to collect feedback from renowned policy-makers, practitioners and researchers regarding the further developments of MIRROR.

A MIRROR consortium meeting was held on the 14th and 15th of December, providing project partners with an opportunity to update each other about the latest developments within the project. Furthermore, planning sessions took place charting the course for MIRROR’s activities in 2021.

MIRROR  (Migration-Related Risks caused by misconceptions of Opportunities and Requirement) is a research project that aims to generate a greater understanding of how people (from outside the European Union) perceive Europe as a destination for migration. The results of the project will form the basis for policy recommendations and the development of the MIRROR platform and toolset for effective cross-media perception analysis.

The project brings together a multidisciplinary consortium composed of fourteen partners from seven countries from research and industry, as well as practitioners, including SAIL LABS Technology. The consortium will cooperate over the next three years with the goal to gain a better understanding of how Europe is perceived abroad and the mechanisms involved in the process. The MIRROR Project started on the 1st of June, 2019, and has a time period of three years.

The project also launched recently an explanatory video, which contains a simplified explanation of the project. 

The MIRROR project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement № 832921.
