This chapter explains the networks within the Research and Development in Empirical Studies (REDES) Project, a multi-cultural enterprise composed of researchers from four different countries, which aims at promoting empirical studies of culture at an international level. This chapter traces the history of the project and how it became reality in the four current branches in Brazil, Germany, Ukraine and Canada. Each local branch is described in detail and the distinguishing features are highlighted. Finally, some conclusions are drawn in relation both to what has been accomplished in the five years of the project's existence and to the problems still ahead.
