Within the framework of the ERASMUS+ programme there is also the opportunity for administrative staff and those working within the scientific departments at BOKU to attend further training at a European partner university or at a company/institution (arranged by the participants). You either need to be employed as a regular member of staff at BOKU or hold a teaching position. Staff members also have the opportunity to attend an International Week organised by partner institutions. The aim of this mobility is to acquire knowledge, skills and practical experience, which are important for staff members’ current positions and professional careers. Examples of this are:

  • Short-term collaborations
  • Job shadowing
  • Study visits
  • Participation in workshops etc.

Please note: Financial support for participating in conferences cannot be provided.


The period of mobility must be for a minimum of 2 days and can be for a maximum of 2 weeks (excluding travel time).

Funding amount

Please use this guide to estimate the maximum support grant that you would be entitled to:

Funding period 2018/19: Maximum Support 2018_19
Funding period 2019/20: Maximum support 2019_20

Human Resources department will only refund the actual costs of participating in the programme against the receipts that they receive. Therefore you will NOT automatically receive the maximum support grant. It is also imperative that you clarify how much funding is still available with the Center for International Relations (CIR). You are not automatically entitled to funding. Please also read through the information on business trips.

Important: Due to increased demand, staff members can only complete one period of mobility per project period.

Please contact Gudrun Reisinger on time to organise funding for your travels. Funding is allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

It is essential that you retain your original boarding passes (or train tickets) to be eligible for a refund!
