Erasmus Staff Mobility

The Erasmus program supports further education and training for administrative staff with the aim of stimulating the process of internationalization at universities. Stays abroad are funded at European universities as well as in foreign enterprises or organizations.

The ERASMUS mobility program for employees is explicitly supported by the University Executive Board and is part of the personnel development program of the University.

Employees from all areas of the University, e.g. centralized and decentralized administration, student counseling, public relations and communication, finance, libraries, technical services etc.;  trainees can also be supported through the programme.

Members of the teaching faculty may also be eligible if the stay is in connection with further education or advanced training. The teaching faculty mobility program offers applicants support in securing a teaching assignment at the partner university.
