On September 15, 2020 the first Project Review meeting of the EU research project MIRROR took place.
The meeting, which was held virtually, provided some valuable input and feedback for the next two years.
The purpose of the review was to illustrate the results of the first year of the project, the achievements and future plans to the EC MIRROR project officer and the experts of the European Commission.
MIRROR, which stands for “MIgration-Related Risks caused by Misconceptions of Opportunities and Requirement”, is the Horizon 2020 project that aims to develop an integrated platform, a set of tools, as well as a systematic methodology capable of analyzing the ways in which Europe is perceived outside its borders, especially by the countries of origin of migration.
In this project, EURIX leads the “System Architecture and Integration” task as partner responsible for the development of the MIRROR framework. EURIX promotes the adoption of innovative Agile methodologies for software development and of DevOps principles and technologies for the MIRROR platform deployment.
EURIX is also responsible for the integration of the analysis methods and tools in the overall platform and is involved in the preparation of project pilots.
