The project has the following intervention logic:

The development of the main product, the new guidance publication on European project management was based on three pillars:
(1) The former Socrates Survival Kit publication served as a starting point and basic text corpus. What was still valid reappears in the new Kit or was modified.
(2) Several previous projects and programme evaluation exercises identified needs, good and bad practice from project actors, e.g. the projects Euroweaving (focus on European networks) and InterTool (focus on intercultural issues).The results of these surveys were carefully analysed and integrated.
(3) A Survival Kit focus group of Grundtvig stakeholders was formed. It consisted of

  • Experienced project coordinators
  • Actors at programme level: Executive Agency, European Commission, National Agencies
  • Independent experts: assessors of proposals and final reports, members of former Grundtvig Stakeholder groups,  European associations

This focus group expressed needs with regard to the new guidance publication, identifies good practice, gave feedback on drafts, and contributed experiences and good practice examples.
