Toolkits are the practical and hands-on side of EU funded projects. They are usually the result of the research, the experimentation and the trial and error of the projects. Helping you avoid the pitfalls they encountered. They are meant to be shared and to provide user-friendly methodologies, ideas and inspiration.
Here we picked a few that we found useful. They will give you insights about diverse topics, from hands-on guidelines to the current state of policy discussion in our fields.
