Within the framework of the networking activities an extended survey on multigrade needs and best multigrade practices is going to be conducted in each of the countries of the participating institutions. Dedicated working groups of the network are going to be involved in this procedure. The organisation of workshops, both on regional and international level will allow the participants to combine first-hand experiences of different educational systems with professional development. The overall aim of the NEMED network is to proceed on developing and distributing an overall report on multigrade education. The network intends and has the ability to approach and “hand over” the report on multigrade education to educational ministries and educational policy makers in order to exert pressure on taking political measures on improving multigrade education in Europe.
