region by (i) improving the accreditation mechanism in the region and discussing bi-regional accreditation schemes; (ii) advancing the discussions about the impact of the Erasmus Mundus programme in
the region and its relation with the different mobility schemes operating in the region; (iii) increasing discussions between industry and university in the region (iv) contributing to the
interdisciplinary policy debate in furtherance of increased participation and mutual understanding among different stakeholders of both regions; and (v) ensuring sustainable means of multiplying and
disseminating successful experiences of EU-MERCOSUR joint actions.
Among its most important outputs ULISES envisages carrying out research papers, focus groups, round-tables, debates, forums, workshops and seminars, a dynamic website portal and an updated
on-line bulletin to foster active participation and debate among stakeholders in ULISES.
