Survival Kit – Managing Multilateral Projects in the Lifelong Learning Programme

The Survival Kit aims to provide guidance for education professionals on how to plan, organise, implement, monitor and evaluate, disseminate and sustain Multilateral Projects in Grundtvig and other actions of the Lifelong Learning Programme. The publication addresses, above all, project co-ordinators with little or no previous experience with European co-operation.

While the Survival Kit is tailor-made to the specific needs and context of Multilateral Projects much of its content is relevant for other types of projects in the Lifelong Learning Programme including:

  • Networks, which have the same funding mechanism, but for whom two separate publications exist: The Art of Networking and the Resource Pack for Networkers, downloadable at  
  • Partnerships and Transfer of Innovation Projects, managed by the National Agencies in the participating countries
  • Transnational projects in other EU funding programmes in education, training and related fields
