Within the framework of a research study developed at the University of Aveiro, a group of educational partners representing local institutions was gathered. The aim was to conceptualize, implement and evaluate a collaborative research project on intercultural education. Each of the participants was interviewed (semi-structured interview), in order to know their perceptions in practices on intercultural and collaborative work and the reasons that lead to this collaborative participation and their expectations concerning the work that is still to be done. Their answers revealed that the intercultural issue is familiar to all participants and that they feel the need to learn more about this topic motivated them to participate in this collaborative project. Further more, all of them reported previous experience on collaborative work, acknowledging its assets in comparison to the work carried out individually. These data will allow us to guide the work that will be developed by the network of partners and also to analyze the evolution of their representations of intercultural education and work in partnership, through the application of a final interview.
