The project (06/2007 – 09/2009) is supported by the Grundtvig programme of the European Union.

The Grundtvig programme seeks to respond to the challenges raised by the necessity to update knowledge and to provide adults with pathways to improve their know-how and competences, as they progress through life so that they can adapt to changes in the labour market and society. Grundtvig focuses on all forms of non-vocational adult and continuing education. It is targeted at learners, teachers, trainers and other staff in adult education and the educational institutions, organisations and other bodies offering and facilitating such learning opportunities. Adult education associations, counselling and information services, NGOs, enterprises, research centres and higher education institutions can work together through transnational partnerships, European projects and networks. Those involved in adult education can also take part in mobility activities.

The Danish philosopher, theologian, teacher, historian and poet Nikolaj Frederik Severin Grundtvig (1783-1872) is regarded as the ‘father’ of the Folk High School and as a staunch supporter of educating adults for active participation in society as opposed to the more abstract pursuits of scholars.
