MIX - Center for Displacement, Migration and Integration will be the title of a newly announced research center joining the forces across multiple departments at Aalborg University.

Still open for new members the center is a new initiative that builds on top of The Faculty for Social Science’s diverse and strong research on displacement, migration and integration. So far MIX has traction. Already 50 researchers have joined the center.

It is a forum for researchers from all social science disciplines to meet, discuss research and discover each other. The aim is a strong and supportive internal network that strengthens research and helps bring life to new, innovative research ideas and collaborations.

Forming the new network

- We want the center’s strategy and activities to resonate with the wants and needs of its members, says Kristian Kriegbaum Jensen, Associate Professor and head of MIX, the new research center.

- Therefore all members are encouraged to join an online strategy workshop on 24th of June and seminar on 6th of September before the official launch of the center in November in Copenhagen as part of the final FLOW final conference.

At the June workshop, the steering group will introduce the center but the main point for the event is for the researchers to get to know each other and share thoughts about the center’s potential, and how it can support research efforts and interests.
