Staff Mobility


Staff Mobility for Teaching (STA)

Erasmus+ offers teaching staff the opportunity to spend a period teaching at European partner universities, which hold a valid Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE).  The lectureships are aimed at strengthening the European dimension of the host university; supplementing  the courses and imparting  expertise knowledge to students who do not wish or are unable to study abroad. They should also promote the development of  joint international study programmes  as well as the exchange of course content and teaching methods. Personnel from foreign companies and organisations may also be invited to teach at German universities.

Staff Mobility for Training (STT)

Erasmus+ provides support to staff at a German higher education institution with an ECHE, who wish to travel abroad for training purposes. The host university may be another higher education institution which also holds an ECHE, or a public or private organisation active in the labour market or in the fields of education, training or youth and based in a Programme country. STT offers funding to staff from all areas of the university.
