Staff mobility

USMB staff (all, permanent and contractual) have the opportunity to carry out a academics, teaching or prospecting mobility in an institution in another European country that is a member of Erasmus+.

These stays enable us to develop partnerships, improve knowledge sharing within Europe, discover the working methods of European colleagues, and exchange experiences and best practices.

  • Staff training academics (Erasmus+ STT: Staff Training mobility)
    This involves taking part in a
    academics, internship or observation activity in a company or higher education institution (including structured courses, BIP - hybrid intensive programs, academics language, participation in a staff week, summer school, etc.).
  • Teaching mobility (Erasmus+ STA: Staff mobility for Teaching Assignment)
    This involves teaching courses integrated into the curriculum of the partner institution. This mobility can take place in any academic branch or discipline.

Please note : conferences are not eligible for staff mobility.

For staff with disabilities, special funding is available to cover the extra costs associated with mobility abroad.

ECO-RESPONSIBLE MOBILITY, also known as "green mobility":

  • The balance of 25% of the cost of the stay will be paid at the end of the mobility program, on receipt of supporting documents.
