The presentation assesses the final outcome of the international REDES (Research and Development in Empirical Studies) project. Founded in 2002, for about a decade it functioned to promote the investigation of culture, literature, language and media from a multicultural perspective. More than stimulating research by (especially) beginning students, it aimed at helping them become autonomous researchers by way of using empirical methods. Our aim is to see how participants benefited from this experience after over a decade. To this end, 53 REDES participants from three regional groups (Brazil, Germany and Ukraine) answered a questionnaire about how they saw the project in terms of its effect over their lives and careers. The results from the data analysis indicate that not only many participants felt motivated to pursue further degrees and develop other research projects, but they acquired many skills which have been considerably influencing their careers in different fields of action.
