One of the tools we develop is a mobile application that includes an intelligent assistant based on natural language processing. This application is designed to help workers in the everyday situations they encounter.
MIGRATION AND DEVELOPMENT: PROACTIVE POLITICS
We focus on the effects of international migration on development of target economies as well as on resource regions. We participate in proposals for effective measures to integrate foreign workers into labor markets and into society.
CLIMATE CHANGE, RESILIENCE AND POPULATION DYNAMICS
We survey the perception, resilience and adaptation strategies of households in Asia, Europe and Africa affected by the effects of climate change or other environmental changes and their impact on population dynamics. To do this, we use a variety of GIT tools and visualization in a geographic context.
