The Erasmus+ Staff Teaching and Training Mobility applications for MEF University full-time staff are now open. The online application links are further down the page after the eligibility criteria. The application deadline is 26 February 2024.
To qualify, a staff member has to present an invitation from a receiving institution/organization at the time of application, and before the mobility, a staff teaching/training agreement has to be signed by all three parties: the participant, the sending institution and the receiving institution/organization Please find the templates for the staff mobility agreements below.
Qualified applicants are eligible for Erasmus+ mobility grants based on the selection criteria explained further below. The budget currently available will fund four mobilities, and the teaching and training categories are interchangeable.
Staff Mobility for Teaching Assignments (STA) has to be based on an inter-institutional Erasmus+ agreement belonging to your academic unit with another higher education institution holding an ECHE (Erasmus Charter) and consists of at least eight hours of teaching during a minimum period of two days, a five-day stay being the most common. Longer stays are possible up to two months, but the per diem is reduced to 70% of the normal for stays over two weeks. Due to the limited budget resources, we will only fund maximum one-week stays in this call. Teaching mobility funding can also be used to invite a person from a commercial or non-profit undertaking in a program country (but not from another higher education institution) to teach at MEF.
Staff Mobility for Staff Training (STT) can take place at another higher education institution or a commercial or non-profit undertaking relevant to the staff member’s professional field in the programme countries and an inter-institutional agreement is not required. The length is minimum two days and maximum two months, with each day full of training activities. The per diem is reduced to 70% of the normal for stays over two weeks. Due to the limited budget resources, we will only fund maximum one-week stays in this call.
Neither teaching nor training mobility can be used for conference attendance. Academic staff members qualify for both teaching and training mobility, administrative staff for training mobility.
This call is governed by the grant agreement 2022-1-TR01-KA131-HED-000053705 and the spending deadline for the budget is 31/07/2024. The planned activity has to be carried out before the aforementioned date.
