Erasmus Staff Mobility is divided into 2 sub-categories:

 

  1. Teaching Mobility
  2. Training Mobility

1. Teaching Mobility

 

Teaching Staff Mobility allows the lecturers at a higher education institution holding an ECHE in Turkey to teach at a higher aducation institution holding an ECHE in one of the programme countries, and to perform academic/educational activities in collaboration with the partner institution as part of lecturing.

The staff invited to lecture must be employed at an enterprise abroad, educational center, research institution or another institution which meets the definition of enterprise. In this context, institutions -regardless of their sizes, legal statuses and the economic sector they are active in – which carry out all kinds of economic activities including social economy with any public or private establishment meet the definition of enterprise. However, staff from a higher education institution cannot be invited with a grant payment.
