Participants are young diplomats from the foreign services of member states and officials of the European Commission and the Council Secretariat.

The fourth module is taking place in Malta, which currently holds the Presidency of the European Council of the European Union. Diplo's programme for Training Directors will be delivered by Dr Jovan Kurbalija with Dr Katharina Hoene (online learning), Dr Stephanie Borg Psaila (social media), and Ms Barbara Rosen Jacobson (data diplomacy).
