Grundtvig Multilateral Projects are undertaken by institutions/organisations from different participating countries working together, pooling knowledge and experience, in order to achieve concrete and innovative results/products, like courses aimed at enhancing the quality of the provision, with indisputable European value. In many cases, this will involve piloting experiences in strategic areas and producing teaching products of high quality. These projects also seek to strengthen the European dimension in the field of adult learning.

Projects are encouraged to involve adult learners in their activities, and to take learners' needs and experiences into account. To this end, learners may take part in project meetings and all other appropriate events and activities within the project.
All projects must include plans for the evaluation and dissemination of project results.
* Note: Even where the development of Grundtvig Training Courses is not the primary focus of the project, applicants are strongly encouraged to include the organisation of such courses in their proposal wherever appropriate as a means of disseminating the results of the project actively to adult education teachers, managers or other adult education staff. The costs of organising such courses can be offset through the award of Grundtvig In-Service Training grants to the participants, provided the courses are approved for this purpose by the relevant National Agencies.
