A project can mean many things. If for you it is essentially a set
of files (whether under a single directory or located anywhere), then
Bookmark+ might be able to help. You can bookmark a set of files and
switch to it by "jumping" to the bookmark. You can associate any
function with a bookmark, as a handler, so jumping to it can do
whatever else you like, as well.
You can also bookmark Emacs desktops. When you jump to a desktop
bookmark, you switch to its desktop. And you can tag bookmarks with
(any number of) arbitrary strings or name+value pairs.
Tags are one way to define sets of files/buffers. Other ways
include using different bookmark files (and you can bookmark a
bookmark-file) or different bookmark-list displays (and you can
bookmark a bookmark-list display).
