KA171 Staff Mobility

Erasmus Information Handbook

KA171 Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM)

International Credit Mobility (ICM) supports the mobility of individuals enrolled or employed at a higher education institution (HEI), from a Programme Country to a Partner Country. Partner Countries are all the other countries in the world, grouped together in different regions. Not all Partner Countries are eligible for international credit mobility.

Duration of the Mobility

Staff mobility for teaching for academic staff and for invited staff from non-academic organizations to teach at a partner higher education institution (HEI) abroad. The mobility period can last from 5 days to 2 months.

Staff mobility for training for teaching and non-teaching staff in the form of training events abroad (excluding conferences), job shadowing, observation periods and/or training at a partner HEI. The mobility period can last from 5 days to 2 months. This activity also supports the mobility of staff from Partner Country HEIs to train at a non-academic organization located in a Programme Country.

Staff teaching and training activities can be combined. In case of less than 5 days for staff training mobility, at least 8 hours of training is expected to be completed.

Other organizations in Programme and Partner Countries are also eligible to take part in an ICM project. These organizations can host students on traineeship or HEI staff in training, while staff from these organizations can be invited to teach at an HEI. These organizations must be active in the labour market or in the fields of education, training and youth. 

Please note that campus tour activity is not considered as an official activity in the work plan for teaching and training mobility.
