Training staysStaff mobility

Erasmus enables further education and training measures for university staff in program countries to expand internationalization. The stays abroad last a minimum of two days and a maximum of two months. The funding includes daily rates and travel expenses. There are special grants for grantees with children and for grantees with disabilities.

The following continuing education formats are supported: Job shadowing, study visits, participation in workshops and seminars, participation in language courses.

Many universities offer so-called Staff Weeks, which last about five working days and include university-relevant workshops or language courses. A corresponding database can be found in the adjacent link.
