  • 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.

The idea of the BE MUNDUS project was first launched by IBE – The Institute for Studies Brazil Europe. IBE was established in 2010 on the initiative of the European Commission. Constituted by Brazilian and European universities, IBE aims to strengthen HEI in Brazil and promote mutual knowledge between Brazilian and European institutions and societies.
Erasmus Mundus Action 2 fully reflects IBE’s mission and has strong potential to contribute to its key objectives “to promote the development of teaching and research on issues where the European experience can add value so as to positively contribute to Brazil’s development challenges”.
