In this article we study typologies of partnership in three local projects for employment promotion, based on case study methodology. Partnership is the process by which two or more agents interact on the basis of key assumptions that are reflected in the project dynamic. For the three projects analysed Medida, Formart and Le Cheile the definition of participation through resource availability and actions constitutes the basis for coordination development by partner agents. Forms of coordination differentiate partnership dynamics, which are also based on different organisational impacts in projects and in the origin institutions of the partners.
