The main objective of this article is to determine the relationship between intercultural training research and professional training practice from three perspectives based on a positioning of the concept of experience in the context of social and cultural studies: experiences can firstly be considered as an object of research, secondly from a methodological perspective as a learning resource and thirdly as a discursive and practical- conceptional component for the design of intercultural education programmes and cross-cultural trainings in order to negotiate the science-practice dialogue.
