The partners have been chosen taking into consideration geographical distribution, expertise and interest in partnership development in order to insure complementary experience in the field. The partnership covers 5 EU Member States (Italy, Spain, UK, Romania and Slovenia). The geographical spread across the EU helps ensure a deep analysis of bullying in different social contexts and the opportunity to test comprehensive solutions. Finally, some of the partners have already successfully collaborated in other projects (Icaro with ANSI; CECE, with NCfLB and ISJP).

Some partners, such as CECE and NCfLB, have a wide range of experience in successful international projects to reduce bullying at schools, including previous experience in Daphne III.

Other sectors of actions are those included in the field of "personal services".
