This activity allows HEI academic staff or staff from enterprises to teach at a partner HEI abroad. Staff mobility for teaching can be in any subject area/academic discipline. In the case of teaching assignments between higher education institutions in Program Countries, both institutions have to be holders of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) and must have signed an inter-institutional agreement. The partner higher education institution/enterprise must have agreed on the program of activities to be undertaken by the visiting teachers (Mobility Agreement) prior to the start of the mobility period. In all cases, the activities of staff undertaking a teaching assignment should preferably be integrated into the curriculum of the receiving institution. In the case of staff mobility from an enterprise to a higher education institution, the mobility is arranged by an invitation from the higher education institution to the staff member of the enterprise. The grant is always managed by the higher education institution. You may review the announcement for Erasmus+ Staff Teaching Mobility Applications on Myozu.
Duration of Mobility
A teaching period between two Programme countries must last a minimum of 2 days and a maximum of 2 months. This excludes traveling time. During your stay abroad, the teaching activity must comprise a minimum of 8 hours per week (or any shorter period of stay) of actual teaching time. Mobilities shorter than 2 days will not be considered valid unless there is a force major.
Financial Support (Erasmus Grant)
EU grants provide a contribution to your costs for travel and subsistence during your time abroad and vary depending on:
- The receiving country
- The distance between your country and the receiving country
The daily mobility grant (country-based per diem) amounts are stated below. In addition to the per diem rates, the grant covers travel expenses calculated by the European Commission’s distance calculator. Additional funding can be provided by the participating staff and/or his/her department/faculty if the financial support does not cover the full teaching period.
