Exchange opportunity for staff – building knowledge and contacts
ERASMUS enables higher education teaching staff and people employed in private businesses to go abroad to teach in a higher education institution for up to six weeks. Likewise, any academic and non-academic higher education staff may receive training abroad in an enterprise or another institution.
Mobility Opprtunities for Teaching Staff: having teaching staff coming from abroad enables students to benefit from new lectures, different teaching methods and perhaps to experience learning in a foreign language (this is called "internationalisation at home"). Teachers can gain different perspectives, establish new contacts and build their academic network. Periods are quite short, averaging about one week.
Mobility Opportunities for Administrative Staff: administrative staff from higher education institutions can go abroad to receive training in a business or at another institution. The stay is an opportunity to stimulate further exchanges and co-operation.
