Our report intends to present managerial issues encountered in managing process of multicultural and multinational projects. Multinational projects have specific constraints like language, culture, socio-economic and political differences. Over the years, the project coordinators that have lead these types of projects have come to the conclusion that managing a multinational project is very different by managing a localized project. The result of our research is reflected in the case study: “Socrates – European Cooperation projects”. We focused on project organization and team building and presented our point of view over issues as leadership, trust, communication, infrastructure and decision making.
