  • Must be a national of one of the eligible countries;
     
  • For Target Group 1: Western Balkans staff must work in or be associated to one of the Western Balkan HEIs participating in the partnership. EU staff must work in or be associated to one of the EU HEIs participating in the partnership;

The mobility assignments must be based on partnership agreements between the members of the partnership.

The home and host universities and the individual staff must agree on the programme of lectures to be delivered by the visiting staff, on the research activities or on the type of training to be followed;
The mobility of staff should contribute to strengthen international co-operation capacity of higher education institutions in third countries, with the production of new teaching material, as well as their management capacity.

It should aim to consolidate and extend links between departments and faculties and to prepare for future cooperation projects between the universities. The staff mobility is also expected to lead to progresses in the application of ECTS or other systems for recognition of studies in the partner institution.

Attention: Neither EU nor Western Balkan students can benefit from a second scholarship for the same type of mobility (BA, MA, PhD, postdoc) under another project under the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 Strand 1. Furthermore, candidates cannot benefit from more than one mobility activity within the same project. Attention: this implies that staff can reapply!
