Non-teaching Staff Mobility

Non-teaching staff of Universidade Aberta have the possibility to carry out a period of mobility for training, in a European higher education institution or in another organization. Mobilities for training do no require the existence of an Erasmus Agreement.

Training period abroad at higher education institutions or any public or private organisation active in the labour market or in the fields of education, training and youth.

Staff may participate in organized training events, such as international Erasmus weeks (cf. IMOTION plataform) or job shadowing and observation periods. Participation in conferences is not financed.

Agreements between two or more institutions in which scientific areas, type, quantity and duration of mobility flows are defined.

The IIA list is available at Universidade Aberta’s Webportal, in the Internationalization area. New agreements can be celebrated by invitation from European HEIs or by Universidade Aberta’s initiative (demonstration of interest originating from departments/degree coordinators/professors).

The IIA are celebrated through a digital platform according to the guidelines of the Erasmus without Paper Initiative.
