Staff mobility through Erasmus

We have received 23 200 euros from the EU for staff mobility in 2018/2019. These funds are available to all employees.

Two kinds of mobility are available: Teaching and training.


Teaching staff kan go on short teaching exchange visits to partner schools in Europe with financial support from Erasmus+ for cooperation with colleagues, give lectures, teach and tutor PhD candidates.
