Three focus groups are in preparation to go in depth into the most controversial issues related to the social acceptance of the technological and methodological solutions developed by the CRiTERIA project. The focus groups will be held in September, October, and November 2023 and will be based on the results of the consultation of 26 representatives of NGOs, media practitioners, officers of national and international organisations and representatives of border authorities carried out by K&I under Task 4.5 of the project. The consultation was completed in March 2023.
