International cooperation is part of the work of many life-long learning organisations in the European civil society sector. Nevertheless, many are not yet involved in international partnerships or could not implement international cooperation successfully. However, international cooperation could help the organisations to initiate internal learning processes and spark innovation. This is the general idea of European cooperation programmes like Erasmus+. Some civil society organisations are utilizing the possibilities of these programmes, but more are routinely applying for funding without success or have never even tried. As anyone who has ever reached out for such financial support knows, these applications require time and personnel in order to be successful. Therefore, starting international projects is a challenge, but implementing them can be an even more daunting task. Project managers need support and specific skills if they are working internationally. In which way do the organisations’ management departments support their international project managers? First-time international project managers especially need help as they are most often not prepared to work in an international environment.
