Staff Mobility

In a globalised world, the international orientation of a higher education institution is of enormous importance for the university itself, but also for its employees. CAMPUS 02 UAS promotes the international mobility of its employees and cooperates with universities in Europe on the one hand and with companies and organisations worldwide on the other.

Incoming & Outgoing

Through staff mobility, networks are formed in the fields of teaching and R&D beyond national borders. The economic competitiveness of the educational institution and its staff increases through international experience. Language as well as intercultural competencies of the staff are enhanced. It strengthens the innovative potential and sharpens the perspective on strengths and weaknesses of one's own educational institution. International experience opens up new horizons and boosts the motivation of the staff.

Currently, CAMPUS 02 UAS is primarily focused on establishing a cooperation network in Europe. Therefore, at present, staff mobility within the framework of the EU program Erasmus+ is being promoted. It enables teaching staff to conduct teaching assignments at partner institutions and administrative staff to participate in training activities at partner universities or in companies. A requirement for Erasmus+ staff mobility is the existence of a bilateral agreement between the respective universities. Please inform yourself about the existing Erasmus+ partnerships of CAMPUS 02 UAS.

For the lecturers of the Department of Automation Engineering, there are also mobility opportunities within the existing CEEPUS networks. For more information on this, please contact the Study Programme Coordinator for International Affairs of the AT department.

Mobility grants serve exclusively as a contribution to covering mobility costs:

Staff mobility is treated similarly to a business trip abroad. Upon timely submission of the business trip request, an additional travel insurance will be automatically arranged by the Executive Office's secretariat.

In principle, multiple stays per contractual year are possible. These stays can also occur consecutively, provided that the minimum requirements are met. However, in order to enable as many people as possible to undertake a teaching assignment, priority is given to staff members who are completing an Erasmus+ assignment for the first time in the current contractual year.

It is also possible for people from companies who are invited to teach at a higher education institution to receive Erasmus+ funding.
