There isn't a function for that.  The "current project" is not what people seem to assume it is.  The current project context only really exists when you are looking at a project or issue.  It does NOT have a value when you are on an admin screen, a dashboard, issue navigator or board.  All you are picking up there is "the last project the user looked at".  This can be quite confusing when people try to do "clever" things with it, because they don't understand that it's not the "current".

Ok, is there a orther field that can be used for placing a project? So i can make a variable dashboard on behave of that field.

No, because gadgets have no way to use it directly.

You can do things with the filters your gadgets use, but there's no "current/previous project" to use in them
