ERASMUS+ Staff Mobility
Training for higher education institution staff at enterprises and at higher education institutions
Staff mobility for training enables teaching and other staff of higher education institutions to spend a period of training between 5 working days and 6 weeks in an enterprise or organisation such as a higher education institution in another participating country.
►What are the objectives of the staff mobility for training?
- To allow the staff of higher education institutions to acquire knowledge or specific know-how from experiences and good practices abroad as well as practical skills relevant for their current job and their professional development;
- To help building up cooperation between higher education institutions and enterprises;
- To motivate students and staff to become mobile and to assist them in preparing a mobility period.
►Who can benefit?
Staff from higher education institutions.
►For how long can staff go abroad?
- Staff can receive training abroad between 5 working day and 6 weeks.
- Shorter stays than 5 working days are allowed in the case when the absence of staff for this minimum period is difficult or in the case of attendance of conferences, seminars and workshops.
- Language training and attendance of conferences, seminars and workshops should not represent the majority of the total ERASMUS-funded training days per sending institution and academic year (per single grant agreement).
►Where to train and what kind of training is offered?
The stay in the partner enterprise, organisation or institution can be called a variety of names: short secondment period, job-shadowing scheme, study visit, workshop, conference etc.
►Are language courses included among the training possibilities?
Language training and attendance of conferences, seminars and workshops should not represent the majority of the total ERASMUS-funded training days per sending institution and academic year (per single grant agreement).

Staff members are selected by the sending higher education institution.
The sending institution and the receiving institution / enterprise must have agreed on the "training programme" undertaken by the staff member, prior to the start of the mobility period.
►How is the grant managed?
The grant provided to contribute to subsistence costs and to cover travel costs is always managed by the higher education institution.
