Setting up an international network of experts in the field of cross cultural competence opens the possibility for co-ordinated know-how transfer and aims at bringing together those who work on this issue in order to promote and develop this subject collectively. The emphasis is laid on the organization of international workshops and conferences which will certainly be favourable for personal connections among the experts and might lead to new links between them as well as to the creation of common research projects. Furthermore it is an aim to facilitate the submission of project proposals, on the one side because the network facilitates finding suitable project partners, on the other because the existence of a consolidated network will in a sense be an encouraging argument with respect to research funds.
