Erasmus Staff Mobility, which is a part of the Life Long Learning Programme, allows faculty and staff members to carry out a period of teaching or training at a partner university or a company in Europe.
University staff can participate in two strands of Erasmus:
1) Erasmus Teaching Mobility
2) Erasmus Staff Training Mobility
Teaching mobility can be undertaken:
There is an obligation to deliver at least 5 hours of teaching (i.e. at least one day). A minimum duration of 5 working days is strongly recommended to provide a meaningful contribution to the teaching programme and international academic life at the host institution. Shorter periods should be exceptional. The maximum duration is 6 weeks.
For teaching periods of 5 days or less weekends or holidays falling in the period of the stay abroad are not usually considered for support, unless they are used as travel or working days. In such cases the teaching programme should demonstrate that teaching activities have been undertaken for the period reported.
Staff training is an option for all staff, and can involve teaching or non-teaching staff:
• Going to another Higher Education Institution which holds a standard Erasmus University Charter
• Going to an enterprise
Within the broad objective of staff training this action encompasses three types of mobility:
