  • Payment of a grant directly to the staff concerned, who will then take charge of their mobility (reservation and purchase of travel tickets, hotels, etc.)
  • An advance of 100% of the travel amount and 75% of the stay amount will be made before the mobility.
  • The balance of 25% of the amount of the stay will be paid at the end of the mobility upon receipt of the supporting documents.

According to the certificate of attendance :

  • for shorter effective mobilities: downward adjustment of the number of funded days of stay
  • for effective mobilities longer than those validated by the CORI: no upward financial adjustment


In view of the strategic choices defined by the International Relations Steering Committee, it was decided to encourage as much as possible travel to :

  • cross-border regions and the Alpine arc (Northern Italy, Southern Germany, Austria and Slovenia)
  • Mobilities within the "Unita Universitas Montium" alliance: the University of Turin (Italy), the University of Zaragoza (Spain), the University of Beira Interior (Portugal) and the University of West Timisoara (Romania).
  • destinations that generate student mobility, particularly English-speaking and Scandinavian countries.
