- Officials and professionals of the institutions that make up the Regional Table for Technical Cooperation on Transversal and Socio-Emotional Competences (MESACTS).
- Officials and employees of the ministries and public bodies that manage the institutional programmes that promote transversal and socio-emotional competences.

The EUROsociAL Programme is at the origin of the project. An action on transversal and socio-emotional skills within the EUROsociAL II (2015) framework later resulted in the signing of a Framework Document (2016) which enabled the creation of an articulating entity in the matter: the "Mesa Regional de Cooperación Técnica sobre Competencias Transversales y Socioemocionales (MESACTS)" -i.e. Regional Table for Technical Cooperation on Transversal and Socio-Emotional Competences-, which has been the project's central axis.
The Comitato Internazionale per il Svilupo dei Popoli (CISP) -International Committee for the Development of People- has advised and accompanied the project's implementation.
Thanks to the EUROsociAL Programme, the Spanish experiences with the single qualifications catalogue model and the existence of a 'National Institute of Qualifications' were a reference during the project's development.

The DIALOGAS project helps to improve the effectiveness of programs to overcome poverty and improve education in the Region, by incorporating socio-emotional and transversal skills. We believe that these skills improve the entry and permanence in the work of the most vulnerable. DIALOGAS contributes to compliance of SDG 4 and 10 as it not only promotes growth but also improves the state of well-being of all.
