On July 14, 2021 the second Project Review meeting of the EU research project MIRROR took place.
The target of the review, which was held online, was to introduce both the achievements of these two years and the upcoming activities of the project to 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.
The aim is to highlight the discrepancies between “perception and reality” in order to make European organizations and institutions more aware of the effects and threats that such misconceptions may cause.
In this project, EURIX leads the “System Architecture and Integration” task as partner responsible for the development of the Data Streaming & Analytics framework.
The project consortium consists of: L3S Research Center Leibniz University Hannover (Germany), Federal Ministry of Defence (Austria), Malta Police Force (Malta), Swedish Police Authority (Sweden), HENSOLDT Analytics GmbH (Austria), EURIX Srl (Italy), University of Groningen (Netherlands), Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (Greece), Swedish Defense Research Agency (Sweden), University of Vienna (Austria), University of Malta (Malta), Conoscenza e Innovazione Srls (Italy), Fremde Werden Freunde (Austria), Agenfor International Foundation (Italy).
MIRROR started on June 1, 2019 and has a runtime of three years.
The MIRROR project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation action program under grant agreement № 832921.
