    This showcase paper describes the Global Interaction Research
    Initiative – GIRI – recently inaugurated at the IT University
    of Copenhagen. It presents the motivation for this initiative,
    namely that the use of information technology is the
    core enabling factor for global collaboration and business.
    We argue that there is a fundamental need for understanding
    and providing next generation technologies for this ultra
    large-scale interaction paradigm. GIRI is organizing around
    a set of research themes and projects, focusing on different
    application areas. Themes and projects are loosely coupled
    in the sense that each research project is defined in its own
    right with a specific set of challenges, vision, approach, partners,
    and funding scheme. At the time of writing, GIRI has
    3 research themes and are hosting 6 projects, but these numbers
    are expected to increase as GIRI grows. GIRI is an open
    initiative, and we invite other researchers to join.
