Mobility of learners and staff

Mobility of learners and staff: opportunities for students, trainees, young people and volunteers, as well as for professors, teachers, trainers, youth workers, staff of education institutions and civil society organizations to undertake a learning and/or professional experience in another country; As well as promoting student and staff mobility, Erasmus+ helps higher education institutions to modernize and become more international in their outlook.

Staff mobility includes teaching, training and the possibility of higher education institutions inviting staff from companies to teach. Staff mobility contributes to employees’ personal and professional development. It also aids the modernization of higher education through cooperation between institutions.

Being actively involved in staff exchanges is a way for higher education institutions to achieve academic quality and become well-known. They can lead to new cooperation with higher education institutions abroad.

Erasmus+ will contribute to this modernization, not only through intensified mobility, but also by giving higher education institutions the chance to reach beyond Europe and exchange their students and staff with the rest of the world.
