Cooperation projects of schools and institutions for school education contribute towards implementation of the education policy objectives of the Federal Government and cantons (e.g. the cantonal teaching plans). Moreover, they serve to develop quality and promote innovation in school education and to set up and strengthen international networks. Not least, such cooperation projects help to reinforce openness towards social, linguistic and cultural diversity in Europe.
