Teachers and Technical Staff
If you’re a teacher or a technical staff member from another higher education institution, prepare your mobility exchange by contacting our International Cooperation and Mobility Department (GMCI).
Send an email to Ana Boa-Ventura (firstname.lastname@example.org).
GMCI will take the necessary steps in the department of your choice and the department will consider how the visit fits with their plan of work and academic timetables. We can receive teaching staff throughout the all year, excluding holiday seasons, such as Christmas, Easter and Summer.
Check with your home university which documents they will need to certify your exchange.

It is an online platform that will centralise information about staff training events organised in Europe in order to provide easy access to the information. The platform will help higher education institutions with the promotion of staff training events, it will help those organising job shadowing to find appropriate people and also enable staff to find the appropriate training or job shadowing they are looking for.
The platform will also allow organisers to get feedback from the participants at their events.
