The ERASMUS+ programme also supports teaching and training activities in the programme countries. With the international mobility of university staff, the programme recognises the contribution of teachers and academic and non-academic staff to the modernisation and internationalisation of universities. The results and experience gained are incorporated into structural measures and teaching and research.


The teaching or work programme 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.
