Erasmus Staff Training Mobility

Erasmus Staff Training Mobility is the sub-category that allows mobility for the administrative and academic staff of a higher education institution.

Within the broad objective of training of staff this action encompasses the following types of mobility:

- Mobility of teaching staff from a higher education institution to another higher education institution or to an enterprise, for the purpose of receiving training.

- Mobility of administrative and other non-teaching staff from higher education institution going to a partner higher education institution or to an enterprise, for the purpose of receiving training.

The purpose is to allow the beneficiaries to learn by transfer of knowledge or know-how from the experiences and good practices of a partner institution or host enterprise, and thereby to acquire practical skills relevant for their current job and their professional development.

The activities can be very varied: seminars, workshops, courses and conferences, periods of practical training, etc.

Beneficiaries are selected by the sending higher education institution. A prerequisite for the awarding of any grant is the submission of a work plan agreed by both the sending and the receiving institution or enterprise. The plan must consist of at least: overall aim and objectives, expected results in terms of training or learning activities to be carried out and a program for the training period.
