Staff Mobility (KA103)


Staff Mobility for Teaching (STA)

Erasmus+ supports guest lectureships at European partner universities who hold a valid Erasmus Charter for universities (ECHE). Through their stay abroad guest lecturers are encouraged to strengthen the European dimension of their host university, to supplement their courses and to pass on their knowledge to students who do not want or cannot study abroad. Where possible, the development of joint study programmes of the partner universities as well as the exchange of teaching content and methods should play a role. Even employees from foreign companies and organizations can be invited for teaching purposes at German universities.

Staff Mobility for Training (STT)

Erasmus+ promotes education and training of university staff in Programme countries to strengthen internationalization. For further education and training purposes university staff of a German university with ECHE can be supported for a stay abroad. The receiving institution may be another university with ECHE or another institution based in a Programme country that operates in the labor market or in the fields of education, training or youth. Under this programme line university staff from all areas can be promoted.
