Erasmus+ Short Term Mobility & Blended Intensive Programmes (BIPs)

Ab sofort können sich Studierende, Personal und Organisierende über die Erasmus+ Programme „Kurzzeitmobilitäten“ und „Blended Intensive Programs (BIPs)“ auf der Website von BOKU-IR informieren. 

Eine Erasmus+ Kurzzeitmobilität ist eine physische Auslandsmobilität für Studierende, ergänzt durch einen virtuellen Teil. Für Doktoratsstudierende ist sie auch ohne virtuelle Komponente absolvierbar. Studierende, die nicht die Möglichkeit haben, einen längerfristigen Erasmus+ Studien- oder Praktikumsaufenthalt oder eine mehrmonatige Forschung zu absolvieren, können mit einer Erasmus+ Kurzzeitmobilität ins Ausland gehen. Kurzzeitmobilitäten können in Programm- und Partnerländern weltweit absolviert werden. 

Bei Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programs (BIPs) handelt es sich um kurze Gruppenmobilitäten, an denen sowohl BOKU-Studierende, als auch -Personal teilnehmen können. BIPs gelten als Variante von Erasmus+ Kurzzeitmobilitäten. BIPs bestehen aus einem physischen und einem virtuellen Teil und werden von einem Zusammenschluss aus mindestens 3 Hochschulen aus 3 verschiedenen Ländern durchgeführt. Durch BIPs sollen die Nutzung innovativer Lern- und Lehrmethoden gefördert und die Möglichkeiten der Online-Kooperation genutzt werden. In transnationalen und interdisziplinären Teams können aktuelle gesellschaftliche Herausforderungen bearbeitet werden.

From now on, information about the Erasmus+ programmes "Short-term mobility" and "Blended Intensive Programmes (BIPs)" is available on the BOKU-IR website for students, staff and organising institutions.

An Erasmus+ Short-term Mobility is a short physical mobility abroad for students, complemented by a virtual part. PhD students can also complete it without a virtual component. Students who do not have the opportunity to undertake a longer-term Erasmus+ study stay, internship or several months long research abroad, can take advantage of the programme Erasmus+ Short-term Mobility. Short-term mobilities can be completed in programme and partner countries worldwide.

Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programmes (BIPs) are short group mobilities in which both BOKU students and staff can participate. BIPs are considered a variant of Erasmus+ Short-term Moblities. BIPs consist of a physical and a virtual part and are carried out by a consortium of at least 3 universities from 3 different countries. BIPs aim to promote the use of innovative learning and teaching methods and to exploit the possibilities of online collaboration. Current societal challenges can be addressed in transnational and interdisciplinary teams.
