VIU's Globalization Program provides a truly multicultural, international and interdisciplinary environment for students and professors of the member universities.
VIU now has the opportunity to extend the international experience of academic staff teaching in the Globalization Program, through a new opportunity funded by Erasmus+.
Professors from the Italian member universities may apply to VIU for funding for a teaching experience at one of the member universities in the EU, in Canada or in Israel.
Staff mobility for teaching can be in any subject area/academic discipline.
Who can take part?
Teaching staff of the Italian member universities who have taught in the VIU Globalization Program.
The member of teaching staff may be full professor, associate professor, short-term contract professor, researcher, research fellow, and must be in employment at the member university during the proposed period of staff mobility for teaching.
VIU member universities in KA103 programme countries:

Funding | Travel & Subsistence
Erasmus+ provides funding for staff mobility as a grant contribution towards subsistence and travel. Expense claims must be submitted within 1 month of the completion of the mobility.
Maximum travel grants are set by the European Commission according to the distance travelled at the following rates:
Distance from home university to host university Maximum amounts reimbursed
10-99 Km: € 20,00
100-499 km: € 180,00
500-1999 km: € 275,00
2000-2999 km: € 360,00
3000–3999 km: € 530,00
4000–7999 km: € 820,00
8000 km or more: € 1.500,00
To calculate the distance the European Commission’s online tool must be used.
The distance to be calculated is one way – from the location of the sending organisation to that of the receiving organisation. However, please note that the grant amount covers the outward and return journey from home to host institution.
The subsistence grant is a contribution towards all other costs for the individual including travel within the city, accommodation, meals and snacks.
Actual costs can be reimbursed up to these maximums, and are paid on the basis of receipted expenditure.
Maximum daily contribution to subsistence:
Belgium, France, Germany: € 128,00
Canada: € 180,00
Applicants should consider that these maximum amounts are valid for mobility periods up to September 30, 2019. There may be some variation for later mobility periods. Any variation will be determined by the European Commission and National Agency guidelines.
Please note that staff will be responsible for arranging their own travel and insurance.
