6 Main activities and outputs Products organisation of 3 workshops in Europe and Brazil; steering of virtual and face-to-face forum; production of short papers, policy messages, recommendations; development of public website and newsletter; production of video; production of final project publication; organisation of final project conference. Methods and experiences Sharing international cooperation processes and methodologies; Sharing managerial lessons learned and know-how; Exchange of experience, ideas and best practice through the establishment of communities of practice. Policy Draw on the overall experience of projects within a programme or from individual projects that are particularly innovative or effective (Erasmus Mundus, Marie Curie, FP7, SwB, new Erasmus+, Brazilian strategy on S&T and the EU Horizon 2020) Feedback to inform policy making within the Brazilian Government, the EU Commission and within the Member States.
7 Special feature and most important outcome The creation of communities of practice engaged in: bridging policy and practice, making policies and funding more visible, aligned and directed to the relevant agents at HEI; contributing to better prepare HEI to implement international education and research cooperation programmes more systematically and efficiently; generating content that is highly reusable, of high strategic value and/or the source of significant competitive advantage. One example, already in practice, is the SwB Forum steered by Carla Salvaterra of the University of Bologna, one of the project partners. This group is constituted by the people involved in the coordination and implementation of the Science without Borders (SwB) programme in Europe. Other Higher Education institutions and organisations of HEI, which are sending and receiving SwB grantees, can be also members. The SwB Forum has met three times personally and a web platform is being developed within the ALISIOS website.
