Project methodology was based on a cooperative division of work within a committed and structured Consortium of partner organizations specifically experienced in the fields of education and training as well as business. All partners had experience in the astrategic partnership projects in the Erasmus Plus field. The division of work is based on the different and complementary areas of expertise of partner oganizations and was tailored to achieving the maximum output out of the variety in partners’ profiles and expertise.

The overall direction of the project was entrusted to the applicant organization, which shared the Steering Committee, wherein all partners represented in a frame of equality, and upon which the strategic direction of the project layed. The Steering Committee was chaired by the applicant organization but operated based on democratic procedures. All partners therefore being actively involed in the management, control and planning of the activities.

This cooperation was streamlined through a combination of physical partners’ meetings (4 throughout the 30 months of the cooperation) and online communication within the partnership ensured by virtual meetings (Skype), use of email and Social Media.

Partners participated in the elaboration of the structure of project tasks as well as of the division of project responsibilities, which was formally agreed upon within the Consortium.
