Resumo: The promotion of a knowledge-based society needs, on one hand, technological infrastructure and, on the other hand, a workforce with the necessary skills, knowledge and competences, supported by a well-structured initial education and by a continuous learning program. In the last years, Universities have opened their doors to all citizens, regardless of their status or origin, if they have the capacity to benefit from the educational services on offer. This strategy has allowed mature students to enter (or re-enter) the formal higher education system. Although these students may possess a richness of experience, they can also have difficulty in adapting to the pedagogical approaches of learning and teaching and their attitudes and problems are not necessarily the same as those of traditional students. It is in this context that the project LIHE – Learning in Higher Education emerges. In this paper, the background of the project and the most relevant literature for the subject are briefly described. It is followed by a presentation of the project aims, objectives and methodological approaches. The Portuguese case is introduced, together with the results of questionnaires and interviews. Some preliminary conclusions are outlined. Finally, avenues of future research are discussed
