There are differences which I find basic to set when referring to projects.
Generally speaking, I consider a project every activities, action and praxis: they all imply a need-analysis, a feasibility study, and an activities plan to get to defined results. Every project implies a vision.
In a broader mean, my projects cover various issues:
  • disabilities and inclusion
  • psychological support
  • clinical and methodological supervision
  • project management
  • training and consultancies
It is quite different indeed to manage a project under a local Italian call, or submitting to Eu call; still different is to develop a community based project, and looking for private funds.
These differences refer to the complexity, working languages, award criteria, communication and collaboration between partners.
Every project implies a need-analysis, a development under the methodology of Project Cycle Management; a definition of aims, objectives, beneficiaries, target groups; together with the definition of working pack, responsibilities between the partnership; the budget and the impact.
Sometimes the whole process is very complex, but the net result of newcoming project is an emotion worth enough for all the work.
