What is Erasmus+ Staff Mobility?

Erasmus+ supports teaching and training periods for staff working in higher education institutions. With Erasmus+, you can teach or train at a higher education institution in an Erasmus+ Programme or Partner country.


The new Erasmus+ Program “aims at promoting equity and inclusion by facilitating access to participants with fewer opportunities compared to their peers” (quoted from the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility Handbook for Participating Organizations, Version 5.1 – September 2022 (Call 2022)).

Who can apply?

  • Academic and administrative staff at GJU (regardless of individual period of employment or position at GJU)
  • People of all nationalities are welcome
