Erasmus+ staff mobility for training purposes (STT)

What is Erasmus+ STT?

As a further supporting measure of the internationalization strategies of higher education institutions, the Erasmus+ STT funding line provides support for professional development and continuing education measures for university staff (teaching practice and administration) at European universities and at foreign institutions/companies within the Erasmus area. The stays abroad must last at least two days.

General information on staff mobility with Erasmus+ (STT)

Who is eligible for funding?

The STT program offers support for university staff from all areas, including but not limited to:

  • General & technical administration (e.g. examinations office)
  • University library
  • Subject areas
  • Faculties
  • Financial departments
  • International office
  • Public relations departments
  • Student advisory service
  • Degree program development and quality management
  • Continuing education in didactics for English language teaching

Special consideration is given to the fields of administration/coordination of international degree programs and the areas of general administration particularly affected by this, the promotion of the internationalization strategy and the exchange of "know-how" in the field of documentation and information.

How can I find suitable offers?

In addition to individually agreed professional development and continuing education measures, many universities offer so-called "Staff Weeks" as specific programs for different target groups and areas of work. An overview of current offers can be found IMOTION Erasmus Staff Training.

Which places of destination are included in the funding program?

Staff mobility must be implemented in a country that is part of the program and that is not the country of the sending institution (i.e. not in Germany) and not the main country of residence of the person concerned.

Which countries are part of the program?

All countries that officially participate in the Erasmus+ scheme. An overview of all participating countries is available HERE.

How long does a staff mobility program last?

As a rule, professional development and continuing education mobility programs last one working week.

 

How high is the funding amount or scholarship?

The Erasmus+ mobility grant includes travel and accommodation costs, which are subsidized by the EU KOM / NA DAAD as unit costs. The unit costs of the journey are calculated using the Distance Calculator. The place of departure is always the respective place of employment (Eichstätt or Ingolstadt).

Subsidy for travel expenses

Simple distance in accordance with Distance Calculator = amount (unit costs) per participant (= outward and return journey) 

< 100 km = EUR 20.00 

100 - 499 km = EUR 180.00 

500 - 1,999 km = EUR 275.00

2,000 - 2,999 km = EUR 360.00 

3,000 - 3,999 km = EUR 530.00 

4,000 - 7,999 km = EUR 820.00 

8,000 km and more = EUR 1,100.00

Accommodation costs

Accommodation costs are calculated based on daily rates. The person's mobility program must show that activities related to the mobility measure actually took place on the days that are to be supported. Proof can be provided in the form of a confirmation issued by the host institution at the end of the stay stating the beginning and end of the stay.

Subsidy for accommodation costs

Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom:

EUR 180.00 (EUR 126.00 from the 15th day) – per day per participant (without travel day)

Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain:

EUR 160.00 (EUR 112.00 from the 15th day) – per day per participant (without travel day)

What do I need to know about insurance cover?

An Erasmus+ mobility grant does not include any insurance cover. Neither EU KOM, NA DAAD nor the KU are liable for damages resulting from illness, death, accident, injury to persons, loss or damage of property in connection with Erasmus+ stays abroad.

By signing the Grant Agreement, the grantees undertake to provide for the following insurance cover themselves: 

  • Travel insurance, if necessary
  • Liability insurance (professional and personal liability, if applicable)
  • Insurance for accidents (during business trips, participants are insured against accidents) and serious illnesses (including full or partial incapacity to work)
  • Term life insurance (including repatriation from abroad)

In addition, participants should have a European health insurance card.

It is possible to be included in the DAAD group insurance scheme, which offers comprehensive insurance cover.
