Staff mobility

The Erasmus+ program also supports staff mobility activities, such as teaching assistant ships (STA) and continuing professional development (STT), within the EU.

With the international mobility of university staff, the program recognizes the contribution of teachers and academic and non-academic staff to the modernization and internationalization of universities. The results and experience gained are incorporated into structural measures and teaching and research.

The teaching or work program is defined in advance by a mobility agreement. The university sees staff mobility as part of its human resources development and supports it through preparatory language courses and intercultural training.
