Erasmus+ Teaching Mobility Grants 2015/2016: Third Application Round Now Open

Application deadline: January 29, 2016

Within the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Program Key Action 1 – Mobility of Individuals, CEU faculty and administrative employees may seek Erasmus+ funding for participation in a training mobility abroad. The staff training must be carried out at a Higher Education Institution (HEI) that is a holder of an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education or any public or private organisation active in the labour market or in the fields of education, training and youth.

Pre-requisites of participation

Eligible applicants, regardless of nationality, must hold an employment contract with Közép-európai Egyetem. The sending and receiving organisations, together with the staff, must have agreed on the activities to be undertaken by staff members - in a 'Mobility Agreement' - prior to the start of the mobility period. These agreements define the target learning outcomes for the learning period abroad, specify the formal recognition provisions and list the rights and obligations of each party.

Venue of the activity

Staff must carry out their mobility activity in any Program Country different from the country of the sending organisations and the staff country of residence. The Erasmus Program Countries are the following:

Member States of the European Union (EU): Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom

Non-EU Program Countries: former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Turkey

Eligible activities abroad:

The home and the host institution shall ensure that the visiting faculty’s contributions will be an integral part of a diploma programme of the host institution. Priority should be given to mobility activities which will also 

· lead to the production of new teaching material
· be used to consolidate and extend links between Departments and Faculties to prepare future co-operation projects.

Duration of mobility 

The duration of the mobility is from 2 days to 2 months, excluding travel time. In all cases, a teaching activity has to comprise a minimum of 8 hours of teaching per week (or any shorter period of stay). In order to be able to support various applications, CEU provides grant for a maximum of 5-6 days.

Financial Rules

Selected applicants are eligible to receive funds to partially support their visit, which does not cover all the actual expenses incurred. Funds eligible for Erasmus+ Teaching Mobility are made up of two components;
• Individual Support (Subsistence) and
• Travel Contribution.

Where it is possible, the applicant's unit can supplement the grant from their own budget. Participants will receive their salaries while away on Erasmus teaching.

Application porcedure

- Select a host institution from among CEU’s Erasmus partner institutions.
