ERASMUS+ Staff Mobility

At ERASMUS+ partner universities for university members

Within the framework of ERASMUS+, professors and staff of the DIT can spend a teaching/training stay at an ERASMUS+ partner university. ERASMUS+ funding is available for this purpose.

During an ERASMUS stay, you will have the opportunity to exchange ideas, gain new perspectives, promote your professional development, strengthen your skills and expand your network. You will benefit both professionally and personally from participating in this programme.

 

 

1. Staff mobility

  • Mobility for teaching purposes: This activity offers university teachers and academic staff the opportunity to teach at an ERASMUS+ partner university.
  • Mobility for education and training purposes: This activity supports the professional development of higher education staff through participation in international weeks, training abroad and work placements at an ERASMUS+ partner institution

2. Target group

  • Only people working at DIT may be funded.
  • Lecturers and research assistants can be funded through ERASMUS+ Lecturer mobility
  • Higher education staff from the following areas can be supported through ERASMUS+ staff mobility:
    • General & technical administration
    • Library
    • Career service
    • Faculties
    • Finances
    • University marketing
    • International office
    • Public relations
    • Personnel department
    • Student advisory service
    • Students service
    • Lecturers and research assistants, if no teaching is proven.

3. Funding period

Teacher mobility:

Grants can only be awarded for teaching stays of at least eight teaching hours and a maximum of two months. A minimum of five working days is strongly recommended in order to effectively contribute to the curriculum and academic life of the host university. Priority should be given to those mobilities which also result in the development of new teaching materials or serve to strengthen and develop links between the department and faculties and to prepare future cooperation projects.

In principle, repeated funding is possible, but priority should be given to grants for lecturers who have not yet completed an ERASMUS+ teaching period.

A teaching programme must be drawn up before the lectureship. This should include an agreement on the number of teaching hours.

Proof of the actual duration of the teaching stay must be provided in writing and submitted to the International Office (B 209).

Staff mobility:

The duration of the grant is between two days and a maximum of two months. Exceptionally, it is possible to deviate from the minimum duration if, for example, the absence of staff for a longer period is difficult or if staff are attending conferences, seminars or workshops.

Repeated funding is possible.

A work plan should be agreed before the grant is awarded, explaining the objectives of the exchange.

Proof of the actual duration of the stay must be provided in writing and submitted to the International Office (B 209).

4. Funding

The financial arrangements for lecturer and staff mobility are identical. The ERASMUS+ mobility grant includes travel and subsistence costs, which are subsidised as unit costs.

The travel costs are calculated using the distance calculator and the following table

Simple distance according to the distance calculator amount (unit costs) per participant (=return journey)

 

einfache Entfernung gem. Distanzrechner Betrag (Stückkosten) pro Teilnehmer (=Hin- und Rückfahrt)
10 - 99 km € 20
100 - 499 km € 180
500 - 1,999 km € 275
2,000 - 2,999 km € 360
3,000 - 3,999 km € 530
4,000 - 7,999 km € 820
8,000 km and more € 1,500

 

Subsistence costs are also calculated as unit costs and according to the following table:

Country of destination Unit cost per day per participant until the 14th day of activity
without travel days)
Unit cost per day per participant until the 14th day of the activity
(without travel days)
Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom € 180 € 126

Bulgaria, Estland, Croatia, Lettland, Lithuania, Macedonia (FYROM), Poland, Rumania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary € 140 € 98

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Should the actual costs be higher than the rate paid by ERASMUS+, the remaining costs are to be covered by the faculty/university or the traveller. It is also possible that the international office will pay a grant from other sources of funding if permitted. Therefore, please always check with the international office.

The person's programme must show that activities related to the mobility measure took place on the days to be funded. Weekends and holidays can only be subsidised if there is proof that work or travel took place on these days (e.g. confirmation from the host university).

Parallel funding for similar costs from other EU programmes is excluded.

Funding from one academic year to the next (September and October) is generally excluded. The mobility must be completed and settled in the same academic year.

5. Eligibility criteria

  • Basically the same funding for all (according to unit costs and lump sums in accordance with EU guidelines).
  • Everyone should be given the opportunity to have a required lectureship, further education or business trip.
  • Multiple grants for one person are possible.
