The Erasmus+ program offers full/part-time academic and non-academic staff the opportunity to undertake a short training visit to a higher education institution or some other eligible enterprise/organization in Europe, with funding available for travel costs and subsistence. This activity supports the professional development of HEI staff in the form of training events abroad (excluding conferences) and job shadowing/observation periods at a partner HEI, or at another relevant organization i.e. an enterprise, workshop, or short-term assignments.

The sending institution and the receiving institution/enterprise must have agreed upon the program of the activities to be undertaken by the visiting staff member prior to the start of the mobility period with the Mobility Agreement.

Duration of Mobility
A training period between two Programme countries must last a minimum of 2 consecutive working days and cannot last more than 2 months. This excludes traveling days.

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
  • In the case of mobility within Programme countries, the level of demand from staff from your country who intend to train abroad
  • 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.

Erasmus+ Blended Mobility

Blended intensive programmes are short, intensive programmes that use innovative ways of learning, teaching and training for students and staff including the use of online cooperation. They are developed and implemented by at least three higher education institutions (HEIs) coming from at least three EU Member States and third countries associated to the Programme (called a blended intensive programme partnership).

During blended intensive programmes, groups of students or staff will undertake a short-term physical mobility abroad combined with a compulsory virtual component facilitating collaborative online learning exchange and teamwork. The duration of the physical component is between 5 and 30 days, but there is no limitation on the duration of the virtual component.

For full eligibility criteria please refer to the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.

Within each blended intensive programme partnership there must be one coordinating HEI and receiving HEI (typically the same HEI combining the coordinating and receiving role) and minimum two partner HEIs. A coordinating HEI can be a sending or receiving organisation in a mobility activity. Blended intensive programmes can be open to students and staff from sending higher education institutions outside the partnership, but the receiving HEI must be one of the partnership organisations. The participating HEIs must hold a valid ECHE.

The following mobility activity types can be organised to take part in a blended intensive programme:

  • Student mobility for studies
  • Staff mobility for teaching
  • Staff mobility for training
