General objectives:
The main objective of the BE MUNDUS project is to foster inter-institutional cooperation between European and Brazilian higher education institutions (HEI) and make the EU a privileged region for Brazilian cooperation. In particular BE MUNDUS will contribute to the following objectives and results:

Foster internationalization and quality of undergraduate studies in Brazil
Increase EU-Brazil joint research programmes, so as to enhance skills and qualifications of Brazilian students while opening up new opportunities for the European market.
Build capacity among International Officers within Brazilian HEI and thereby contribute to a more homogenous internationalization across the country.
Foster mutual understanding of EU and Brazil's respective higher education and research systems and priorities, so as to increase recognition of studies and degrees between the two regions.
Promote equal opportunities in higher education by ensuring an inclusive participation in the project.
