What is the project about?

The Erasmus Mundus Intercultural Competence (EMIC) project is a research project funded by the European Commission Action 3 funds to support Erasmus Mundus initiatives. The project hat aims to explore intercultural issues Erasmus Mundus students are facing and to develop an integrated learning programme that will help students deal with issues of cultural diversity and enable them to use intercultural contexts to their advantage. The EMIC Learning programme will create a unique environment for developing intercultural competence, sharing experiences and strengthening bonds with other colleagues, and fostering a network for future intercultural experiences and professional contacts. The project will result in an EMIC Toolkit that will contain a set of open-source tools for supporting activities aimed at developing intercultural competence, based on the EMIC Learning programme.
