Funding of Staff Mobility
Through Erasmus+ we receive funding towards staff mobility.
The total amount of funds per mobility is calculated based on type of mobility, receiving country and duration of your stay.
Typically, we say that the funding we receive from Erasmus+ will mostly cover travel and accomodation.
So, costs exceeding the funding from Erasmus+ will need to be covered by the school. This may be course fees, meals etc.
This means that the employees who have been approved to go on a staff mobility submitt their travel claims through VISMA enterprise as normal and the funding from Erasmus+ will be subtracted for the costs leaving the school to cover exceeding costs as agreed prior to the mobility.
Requirements for mobility
There is a requirements that all the neccessary paperwork and contracts required by the EU are completed, signed and retured to the international office.
For the mobility to be approved the following needs to be in place:
- Completed and signed Grant Agreement (before the mobility)
- Completed and signed Mobility Agreement (before the mobility)
- Completed and signed Confirmation of Mobility (after the mobility)
- Completed Participant Report
More information regarding these requirements and assistance in completing documents will be given by the international office.
