In European Grundtvig actions (projects, partnerships and other mobility actions, networks) stakeholders from different countries gather under a multinational umbrella to develop new approaches, projects, products and services.
Unlike projects at national level activities in international teams require not only stronger efforts in terms of resources but also competences and knowledge about adult learning in partner countries, intercultural collaboration, tolerance, openness for change etc... .
The VIP project approaches European transnational projects as informal learning spaces for individual participating representatives of partner institutions, providing numerous opportunities to acquire new competences or develop the existing ones.

Although there are tools focused on evaluation of projects, there is significant space for improvement in regard to evidencing the quality and creativity of internal learning in projects. VIP is a reaction to the current situation when people participating in international projects do not have sufficient opportunities for self-evaluation.

The VIP partnership will create and test highly relevant and unique tool which will facilitate self evaluation and validation of competences acquired during participation in international projects. The tool is based on approaches and instruments developed in the premium assessed previous projects ACT and SEALLL.
