Staff mobility for teaching and training

The Erasmus+ mobility program is not only devoted to students, but also to academic staff – including both teaching and non-teaching staff – of European Higher Education Institutions and partner countries. See below the outgoing and incoming programs available.

Outgoing Programs

Find here all the mobility opportunities abroad.

Every year, NOVA University publishes a notice setting out the terms and conditions governing the academic staff mobility for teaching or training missions, for periods that normally do not exceed 5 working days – excluding travel time.

Based on this notice, NOVA FCSH opens calls for attributing the grants to teaching personnel, researchers, and non-teaching staff of FCSH, who can thus benefit from mobility experiences to exchange and acquire knowledge in different European Higher Education partner institutions.

The grants include a travel allowance, calculated according to the distance between the institutions, and a mission subsistence allowance as a contribution for the living expenses incurred during the time spent abroad (varying according to the destination country).

 

STA – Mobility for Teaching Activities

For teaching activities, an Interinstitutional Erasmus+ agreement is needed between NOVA FCSH and the destination University concerning the area of study of the beneficiary. A teaching activity has to comprise a minimum of 8 hours of teaching per mobility week.

 

STT – Mobility for Training Activities

This program is devoted to teaching and non-teaching staff, and is designed to support their professional development by financing their participation in training events abroad (conferences excluded) and observation/supervision activities in the working/training place in a partner Higher Education Institution or in another relevant organization abroad.

For these activities, there is no need of an existing Interinstitutional Erasmus+ agreement with the destination organization.

European universities frequently organize training weeks (“Staff Weeks”) – the applications for STT mobility can include mentioning the attendance to these events.
