Cataclysmic Variables are the most abundant population of galactic compact interacting binaries. They represent test objects to improve our knowledge of accretion theory as well as evolution of low-mass close binary systems. The UV domain represents a key range, linking the high energy emission to that of the optical domain, to understand the complex interplay of accretion and outflow processes, as well as to infer the physical status of the accreting primaries. Some of the major results and future needs in this range are discussed.
