GICCO LogoA key feature of the project is the "Global Intercultural Competence Center" (GICCO), which will be established as a joint center by Dr. Claudia Finkbeiner (Kassel University) and Dr. Patricia R. Schmidt (Le Moyne College). The "Global Intercultural Competence Center" uses the Internet as a tool for communication between the project participants in the USA and Europe. The participants use different online communication tools such as e-mail, chat, Skype, instant messengers, and message boards. These online tools provide fast and cheap personal contact between the participants and allow them to cooperate via the Internet. The "Global Intercultural Competence Center" makes this research project an efficient, lively, and communicative experience for all participants.
