Projects

Surveys and development Projects are a main area of activity - in a Danish, Nordic, Baltic and European context.

 

The project activities give a high priority to collaborative networks within the area of liberal adult education, Ngo's and voluntary arts & culture associations, because multilateral and cross-national partnerships pave the way for new ideas, new forms of activities, a broader interface and more funding options.
