Since its foundation, the VU Faculty of Communication has actively participated in various international and national projects. Among the first ones, the European Union TEMPUS programme projects "Information Management Programme for Lithuania" (1995-1998) and "International Communication Programme for Lithuania" (1996-1999) were particularly noteworthy. Under these projects, a dozen postgraduates and a dozen faculty and staff members studied in foreign universities each year for three years; foreign colleagues from partner universities (Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands and Sweden) conducted intensive courses in Vilnius and provided advice on the design and implementation of modern curricula and programmes.
In 2000-2006, the Faculty participated in a number of projects funded by the Leonardo da Vinci and Phare programmes, the EU's 6th Research Framework Programme, the Open Lithuania Fund and other funds. When Lithuania started to absorb the European Union Structural Funds, the Faculty was actively involved in the preparation and implementation of these projects.
Since 2010, the Faculty of Communication has resumed its project activities, actively engaging in both national and international projects funded by the EU's 7th Framework Research Programme and the Lithuanian Research Council. New priority areas are related to the dissemination of digital cultural heritage resources in order to open them up to Europe and the world, as well as to national issues of the creation of a research infrastructure for Lithuanian studies, and to complex and interdisciplinary research on the collections of Lithuanian studies in memory institutions (archives, libraries and museums).
Since 2012, in order to ensure the successful continuity of project activities at the Faculty of Communication, the coordination of these activities has been entrusted to the project managers of the Faculty of Communication.
