Migration and migrant integration: Enabling knowledge-based approaches to migration policy

Issues surrounding migration have become increasingly important across Europe over the past ten years due to the arrival of tens of thousands of refugees fleeing unrest in the Middle East and other regions of the world. This CORDIS Results Pack highlights innovative EU-funded social sciences research that helps us to better understand the complex challenges and opportunities surrounding migration and migrant integration into European societies.

Satellites: A mini revolution unfolds above us

At the beginning of 2019, according to the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA), nearly 5 000 satellites were orbiting the Earth, an increase of 2.68 % on the previous year. Since the Soviet Union first launched Sputnik into orbit back in 1957, around 8 378 satellites have been sent up into outer space. Seven additional satellites are also orbiting planets other than Earth. However, not all of these nearly 5 000 satellites are still active – only around 2 000 are still functional, meaning that less than 40 % of the satellites currently in orbit are fully operational.

Alternative drilling technology for deep geothermal applications

Enhanced geothermal systems have the potential to become a cornerstone of Europe’s renewable energy strategy. To tap this potential, EU researchers have developed a revolutionary water-jet-assisted roller-cone drilling system.
