You want to go abroad

The Erasmus+ Programme permits technical-administrative staff to sign up for the "Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Training", i.e. a training period in a higher education institute and/or company in a participating country.

This type of mobility (through seminars, courses, shadowing, etc), is aimed at the sharing of skills, the acquisition of practical ability and learning of good practices. 

In order to receive funding, an individual training plan must be submitted (agreed between the university and host institute/company).

In the attachments you can find the competition details and forms necessary to participate; other opportunities for Staff mobility can be found via this webpage.


The National Erasmus+ Agency Indire Italia has specified two very important points:

  • if an employee opts for mobility (e.g. by participating in an organised Staff Week) in a week where one day is a national Italian holiday day (for example, 2nd June or a patron saint’s day), they are not entitled to the extra hours in holiday time, but may receive the daily stipend for that day
  • the daily stipend is awarded also for the two travelling days: if a mobility period starts on Monday and ends on Friday (meaning that the employee leaves on Sunday and returns on Saturday) the university may reimburse 7 trip days (5 working days and 2 travelling days); if the employee leaves, for example, on Saturday (because of a cheaper travel ticket, for example) and begins the training on Monday, the University may reimburse the trip from Sunday only (the day before the activity begins).


Funding for individuals with disabilities

For students and staff with special needs, the EU Regulation of the European Parliament and Council referring to the ERASMUS+ Programme has settled additional funding.

Useful information about support services for special needs of disabled students in European countries can be found in the database: “The Higher Education Accessibility Guide” (HEAG)

Please also refer to the “MapAbility” project, designed by the Erasmus Student Network in order to increase and facilitate participation by disabled students with a map of services offered by higher education institutes in Europe:
