Erasmus+ Staff Mobility
Erasmus+ further contributes to the internationalisation of higher education institutions by supporting teaching and learning mobility of university staff. Staff mobility is only possible in a country that is not the country of the home institution (i.e. Germany) nor the country where the staff member currently lives.
If interested, please contact Eike Pockrandt.
Teaching Staff Mobility
Erasmus+ supports guest lectureships at European partner institutions in possession of a valid Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE). Through their mobility, the visiting professors/lecturers strengthen the European dimension of the host institution, complement their teaching offer, and impart their knowledge to those students who are unable to study abroad. Where possible, the development of joint degree programmes as well as the exchange of teaching content and methods should be part of the teaching staff mobility.
Erasmus+ teaching staff mobility can last between two days and two months (excluding travel days). They comprise at least eight teaching hours per stay or per week commenced.
The following persons may take part in this programme:
- Professors und teaching staff in a contractual relationship with the university
- Teaching staff without remuneration
- Lecturers with independent contracts for work and services
- Professors emeriti and retired teaching staff
- Research associates
