Erasmus+ Staff Teaching Grants 2015/2016 - First Application Cycle Open

The Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Teaching grant enables CEU faculty to spend a teaching period at an Erasmus partner institution. The exchange should be completed by September 30, 2016.

Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Teaching may be carried out by all resident and visiting academic staff at CEU, who hold employment contract with the University. The mobility for teaching must be carried out at a Higher Education Institute that is a holder of an Erasmus University Charter and with which CEU has signed a bilateral agreement in a specific area of teaching or any public or private organisation active in the labour market or in the fields of education, training and youth. For example, such organisation can be:

• a public or private, a small, medium or large enterprise (including social enterprises);

• a public body at local, regional or national level;

• a social partner or other representative of working life, including chambers of commerce, craft/professional associations and trade unions;

• a research institute;

• a foundation;

• a school/institute/educational centre (at any level, from pre-school to upper secondary education, and including vocational education and adult education);

• a non-profit organisation, association, NGO;

• a body providing career guidance, professional counselling and information services.

The partner institutions must have agreed in advance on the program of the activities to be delivered by the visiting teachers (teaching program).
