Erasmus+ ST: Application



Who can apply for funding?

Any employee who has worked part-time or full-time at Siegen University for at least half a year. The employment should remain for at least another 4 months after the planned mobility.
It is assumed that the application has been agreed in advance within the own department. Together, possible universities and institutions that are eligible for a stay should be selected. Departmental and strategic considerations should be included. It is desirable that the exchange does not only have value for the own person but as well as for the sending and receiving institution. First contacts to the desired partner university, as well as willingness to receive a return visit are preconditioned. For teaching mobilities, the existence of an Erasmus+ Inter-Institutional Agreement with the receiving university and a minimum teaching load of 8 hours per week is obligatory!
University staff who have successfully participated in staff mobility in the past will be considered subordinated in the selection process.


How do I find the stay for me?

Take a look at the Stay opportunities of the Erasmus+ agreements for teaching or staff mobility. If you are interested, please contact the Departmental Coordinator mentioned in the portal to find out more about the chosen institution and possible contact persons at the partner university for teaching and research possibilities or hospitations and job shadowings. Another option is to attend a Staff Week, which are specifically designed for staff of different departments. The participation in workshops and seminars is also possible. Further inspiration is provided by the Travel Reports Staff Mobility and Travel Reports Teaching Mobility.
