General information about ERASMUS+ Mobility for staff
Erasmus+ supports both teaching and training periods at higher education institutions abroad.
Individuals working in the higher education sector and individuals in businesses who intend to share their knowledge of a given sector, subject or issue, or carry out an internship in a higher education institution, have the possibility to apply for a grant for a teaching or training experience at an education institution in an Erasmus+ Programme country.
The period abroad for both teaching and training mobilities must last a minimum of 2 days to a maximum of 2 months, excluding travel time. In addition, the teaching activity has to comprise a minimum of 8 hours of actual teaching activity per week (or any shorter period of stay).
The mobility grant consists of a contribution towards travel and subsistence expenses for the period of teaching or training abroad. The reimbursement will be paid on the basis of contribution to unit costs.
Travel grants maximums are set according to the distance between the sending institution and the receiving one, and it must be calculated using the Distance Calculator tool supported on the EC’s website. You must indicate the distance of a one-way travel to calculate the amount of the grant that will cover the round trip, as per article 4, table A of the announcement.
The individual support is a contribution towards all other costs, including travel, accommodation and meals. The amount varies on the base of duration and destination of the stay, according to the maximums reported in article 4, table B of the announcement.
