What is it?
Erasmus+ provides teaching opportunities for the teaching staff of higher education institutions and staff invited from enterprises. Training opportunities are also available for teaching and non-teaching staff employed in a higher education institution.
What arrangements have to be made?
In the case of teaching assignments between higher education institutions in Programme Countries, both institutions have to be holder 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 programme 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 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.
Staff members are selected by the sending higher education institution.
The sending institution and the receiving institution/enterprise must have agreed on the programme of the activities to be undertaken by the visiting staff member (Mobility Agreement) prior to the start of the mobility period.
Who can take part?
The institution sending teaching staff or inviting enterprise staff to teach applies for Erasmus+ mobility grants to its national agency while the staff applies to their sending institution, or the inviting institution in case of enterprise staff.
The institution sending staff applies for Erasmus+ mobility grants to its national agency while the staff applies to their sending institution.
