Project objectives:
The General Objective of the Project is to contribute to the creation of a Higher Education Area in Latin America through curriculum convergence.

The Specific Objectives of the current project have been developed on the basis of the agreements reached between the 182 Latin American universities and the benchmarks set by the 18 national governments which participated in the previous phase:
1) Advance the process of competence-based curriculum reform in Latin America, completing the process outlined in the Tuning methodology.
2) Extend the theme of employability within the Tuning Project, developing graduate profiles linked to the new requirements and demands of society, establishing the foundations of a harmonious system which applies this focus to dealing with qualifications.
3) Explore new developments and set up pilot projects in the field of university social innovation, especially, in relation to the Tuning Project theme of citizenship.
4) Incorporate new processes and initiatives, tested in other contexts, for the construction of disciplinary and sectoral frameworks for Latin America.
5) Encourage collaborative construction of methodological approaches to the development and evaluation of competence-based training for the implementation of curricula that contribute to continuous quality improvements, including indicators and thresholds.
6) Design a system of academic credits, which can be both accumulated and transferred, that facilitates the recognition of qualifications within the region of Latin American and is able to be linked with systems in other regions.
7) Strengthen the processes of regional cooperation that support the initiatives of curriculum reform, taking advantage of the skills and experience of the different Latin American countries involved.
