ERASMUS+ is a program established by the European Union to promote the mobility of all university members (teachers, students as well as members of the administration and service units) within the EU. An Erasmus+ training assignment focuses on the acquisition of professional knowledge and competences required for the work at the university, especially with regard to an "added value" to be achieved for the staff and the institution. Know-how is acquired at (as well as contributed to) the host university and is then applied at the home university.
Mobilities can be organized to EU member states (except Austria as sending country), Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Northern Macedonia, Turkey and Serbia. Mobilities to non-associated third countries need to be discussed individually.
Aims of the Erasmus+ training assignments:
The Staff Training should primarily take place at the Erasmus+ partner universities of the ABPU, but in individual cases it can also take place at other higher education institutions with an Erasmus+ Charter or at a company.
