New Partnership: HumMingBird: STUDYING MIGRATION PATTERNS2020-05-22
HumMingBird's overall aim is to improve understandings of changing nature of migration flows and the drivers of migration, to analyse patterns and motivations and new geographies and to calculate population estimates and determine emerging trends and future trends and accordingly identify possible future implications of today’s policy decisions.
Projects ambitions are to identify the uncertainties and reappraise, to explore the reasons why migration predictions may not hold and to demonstrate non-traditional data sources for migration research.
HumMingBird's network brings together research parties/universities, SMEs, private companies, NGO networks, a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC). The multidisciplinary consortium combines a wide range of scientific disciplines (from anthropology and political sciences to statistics, telecom engineering and computer sciences), diversified experience, knowledge and networks.
The project commenced in December 2019 and will last four years.
It is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme and coordinated by the University of Leuven.
