The event is targeted at young researchers from participating COST countries and from certain European research organisations, as detailed in the call for applications. It is also open to anyone interested in receiving training on this topic, including individuals who are undertaking survey research related to ethnic and migrant minorities for academic institutions, NGOs, think tanks, government, etc.
