Mobility for teaching purposes/teacher mobility
Staff from foreign companies and organisations can also be invited to German higher education institutions for teaching purposes.
Detailed information on the application procedure can be obtained from Stefanie Dallmeier during a personal interview. Please make an appointment. Applications can be submitted on an ongoing basis.
Staff mobility must take place in a program country or partner country which is neither the country of the sending higher education institution (except incoming mobility) nor the country of the main residence of the person concerned.
For teaching purposes, university personnel from a German higher education institution with ECHE may be sent to a receiving university with ECHE (outgoing mobility). Staff from another institution based in another programme country (incoming mobility), working in the labor market or in the fields of education, training or youth, may be invited to a German higher education institution with ECHE for teaching purposes.
Erasmus+ funding is available for 2 to 60 consecutive days. Funding for arrival and departure days will be regulated in the grant agreement. Mobility for teaching purposes requires a teaching load of 8 teaching hours per week.

The accommodation costs, including accommodation allowance, depend on the number of days spent at the receiving institution plus, if necessary, an additional day for arrival and departure. The unit cost per day depends on the destination country and the length of stay; from the 15th day onwards the rate is reduced.

The total amount is calculated from the travel costs plus the unit costs multiplied by the number of days spent abroad. Ideally, the money is paid in advance and only confirmed with the business travel statement.
