There are also opportunities for lecturers and other employees of Berufsakademie Sachsen to receive funding for international exchange:
Staff mobility in Erasmus + (STT und STM)
Applications must be submitted via the online portal of the Leonardo Office. Funding is available for mobility within the European Erasmus area for teaching purposes, but also for training measures, e.g. International Staff Weeks or language courses, also for administrative staff. Furthermore, lecturers from the partner university can be invited for short teaching exchanges. This requires an Inter-Institutional Agreement (IIA) with the partner institution.
Staff mobility in Erasmus + ICM
The program also funds teaching and training visits to non-European partner institutions. The list of approved countries or partners can be found on the website of the Leonardo Office. Funding is available for 5-day stays and 1 day of travel as well as a travel allowance (depending on the country). Applications must also be submitted via the online portal of the Leonardo Office. If you are interested, please first contact the Consultant for International Affairs/Intercultural Communication at the Central Office.
