Mobility programmes

From 2014 onwards, scholarships for both experienced and young researchers as well as new doctoral programs are available under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions program, which is part of the Horizon Europe research and innovation program.

 

General goals of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA)

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions strive to raise the attractiveness of Europe as a space that provides high quality conditions for work and career development of both young and experienced researchers. The MSCA goal is to keep the best researchers in the European Research Area, following several main principles:

  • Activities under this program are possible in all domains of research and innovation, from basic research to innovation services;
  • Participation is open to research and innovation staff at all stages of their careers;
  • Participation is open to universities, research organizations, research infrastructures, companies and other socio-economic actors from Europe and abroad, respecting the conditions set out in the specific documents for each of the sub-programs;
  • In particular, transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility is encouraged, as well as the active participation of the industrial sector, namely the SME sector, in order to realize more successfully the goals of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and ensure the sustainability of project results after their completion.

Types of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions:

Academic mobility

Academic mobility refers to higher education students, academic and non/academic staff going to another institution of higher education in a foreign country to conduct a part of the study program (one or two semesters), that is, to teach or have training at another institution.

Student mobility can be implemented at all study levels (BA, MA, PhD and post-doctoral studies) and staff mobility enclose academic and non-academic staff.


Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is one of the largest EU programs that finances projects of mobility and cooperation in the field of education, youth training, and sports. It was established in 2014 and in 2021 entered a new seven-year implementation period that will last until 2027.

HEIs from Programme countries (EU Member states and third countries associated to the Programme) submit mobility project proposals to their National agency and if selected, they enable following mobility activities:

Student Mobility:

  • a study period in a programme/partner country abroad lasting between 3 and 12 months
  • traineeships (work placements, internships, etc.) abroad for students currently enrolled in higher education institutions in Programme countries. These opportunities are also open to recent graduates.

Staff Mobility:

  • teaching periods - staff deliver teaching at another HEI abroad (minimum of 8 hours of teaching per week)
  • training periods - staff undertake a training event or undergo job shadowing/observation

Staff mobility activities can last from 2 days to 2 months, excluding travel time.

CEEPUS - Central European Exchange Program for University Studies

This exchange program is aimed for university studies mobility and is a multilateral university exchange program in the extended Danube region based on an international Agreement between the member countires. Each country has a National CEEPUS Office in charge of national implementation.
