With eminently European vocation it was constituted in May, 2011 and since then it takes shape and expands from a home base in the heart of the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC). It has a team of European partners, co-organizers of the initiative, who feed the fundamental idea of diversity and meeting that is at the base of the project. It is a group of five, some public and other private institutions, of different dimensions, but all of them are closely related to the axes of the project. They are: The Minority Studies Society STUDII ROMANI, from Bulgaria, dedicated to the study and promotion of the European minority groups, especially gypsies; the Vigdis Finnbogadóttir Institute of Foreign Languages of the University of

Iceland, centre for the study of the linguistic diversity of the world the University of Łódź, in Poland, a reference in the study of cultural minorities; CHE Consult GmbH, German consultancy firm specialised in working with educational institutions and groups of scientists seeking work strategies in line with the new challenges of the current University framework; and the Cultural and pedagogical association Ponte nas…Ondas!, Not-for-profit Portuguese entity associated to a group of educational centres in the south of Galicia and northern Portugal to recover and enhance the value of the intangible heritage common to both territories.
