Within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme university faculty and administrative staff have the opportunity to visit Erasmus+ (partner) universities or another relevant organisation for administrative/educational purposes (individually organised) or to join an organised international week. The aim of this mobility is to support the professional development of teaching and non-teaching staff in the form of training events abroad e.g.:

  • job-shadowing
  • workshops
  • trainings

Conferences do not belong to the category "staff training" and cannot be funded!


Duration: The minimum duration of the mobility is 2 days, the maximum duration is 2 weeks (excluding travel days).

Funding amount

Please calculate yourself the possible maximum amount of funding:

Only actual costs (based on receipts) will be refunded by the human resources department, which means that you will NOT automatically receive the maximum amount. Make sure you also check how much funding is still available with the Center for International Relations (ZIB). You are not automatically entitled to funding.Please also read the information on travelling on behalf of BOKU that you will find here.

Important: Because of increased demand, there is only one mobility fundable per person per funding period.

To plan your travel expenses and opportunities efficiently, please contact Gudrun Reisinger as soon as possible. The funding will be granted on a first come, first served basis.

Make sure you keep the original boarding passes (or train tickets) - they are necessary for the HR department and the funding.
