Requirements for the Erasmus+ mobility for staff training application:
- sufficient knowledge of English (B1 of CEFR is recommended); in some cases further languages can be an advantage or are a prerequisite in the chosen host country
- sound and work-related training intentions (or working programme)
- approval of the proposed plan by the responsible supervisor(s)
- cooperation agreement with the Erasmus+ partner university
Funding with Erasmus+ means can be granted if sufficient funds are available and a complete application has been submitted. The stays can be subsidised with Erasmus+ funding rates for staff mobility.
- Repeated funding is possible. However, employees who are taking part in the mobility measures for the first time are preferred.
- Applications are processed and checked for funding opportunities according to the time of submission.
- Staff mobility has to take place in a country which is not the country of the sending university and which is not the primary residence of the participant.
With the programme generation Erasmus+, the financial subsidy has been converted into a lump sum (so-called unit costs) for travelling and accommodation costs. Any positive difference between actual costs and unit costs can be kept by the participant and, if needs be, have to be taxed personally.
The calculation of unit costs for travelling can be done with the Distance Calculator of the European Commission. The amount identified in the table below refers to all travelling costs (outward and return journey).
< 100 km – no subsidy
100–499 km – 180 EUR
500–1,999 km – 275 EUR
2,000–2,999 km – 360 EUR
3,000–3,999 km – 530 EUR
4,000–7,999 km – 820 EUR
8.000 km and more 1,3000 EUR
