The importance of foreigners for the labour market, development of enterprises and functioning of higher education institutions in the Silesian Voivodeship is growing dynamically. Pandemic is especially difficult for them and the uncertainty towards future is even more striking. Are you from overseas? Are you studying or working in Poland? Share your pandemic experiences with us and tell about the problems you have faced. How would you rate your stay in the Silesian voivodeship? What are your plans? We invite you to participate in our survey, so that together we could contribute to a better understanding of the perspective of foreigners by local governments. The worksheets are available in four language versions (Polish, English, Ukrainian and Belarusian).
The growing number and expanding influence of foreigners on the companies or universities is still little reflected in attempts to understand their perspective. We want to change that! All recommendations and efforts should be preceded by a good analysis – that is, a solid diagnosis. This is a basis for designing activities that will enable optimal use of the resources of the Silesian voivodeship and will be beneficial for foreigners living in its territory and all other inhabitants.
We invite all foreigners currently residing in the Silesian voivodeship to take part in the study – regardless of their place of origin. Please share the link to the survey questionnaire with foreign students, employees or entrepreneurs you might know.
Choose a language version of the questionnaire and provide answers. This will take just a few minutes.
The research is carried out as part of "Silesia and the pandemic" cycle in cooperation with the Research and Development Center BioStat.
