Erasmus+ staff mobility categories
UNDER THE ERASMUS+ PROGRAM, THE WROCŁAW BUSINESS UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCES (formerly the Wrocław University of Business) REALIZES TWO CATEGORIES OF MOBILITIES for employees:
A Staff Teaching Mobility for the purpose of teaching at a partner university (so-called STA)
- is only possible to foreign universities with which Wrocław Business University of Applied Sciences has a signed partnership agreement or with which the University intends to sign an agreement,
- is intended for teaching or research and teaching staff.
- During the mobility, the employee is required to conduct at least 8 hours of teaching,
- the mobility should last from 2 to 5 days (excluding travel days)
- prior to the mobility, the academic staff member is required to submit a Teaching program approved by the home university and the host university.
Staff Training Mobility (so-called STT)
- is intended for administrative employees of the university.
- An employee may go to foreign institutions, e.g. companies, organizations, educational institutions, including a university with an ECHE card, in order to improve skills and qualifications needed at work, exchange experiences, improve competencies, expand knowledge in a given field (participation in a training course, seminar, workshop with elements of training, job shadowing visit, etc.).
- the basis for applying for a mobility of this type is an individual training plan (work plan) prepared by the employee. This plan must be approved by the home university and the host institution and signed by three parties (both institutions and the administrative officer)

Step 2 – Gathering information
The employee independently seeks a host organization (for teaching, training, job shadowing, participation in International Week)
The list of partner universities can be found on this website: Partner Universities – WAB we Wrocławiu
We are open to establishing cooperation with more partners. If you are interested in going to a university with which we do not have an agreement, please contact us at [email protected].
It is a good idea to follow the search engine http://staffmobility.eu/ on which you can find information about upcoming events like International Week and trainings in which you can participate using funds received from the Erasmus+ program.
Step 3- Results announcement
After the meeting of the Admissions Committee, the employee will receive to his/her mailbox information about the results of the competition and the award or denial of the mobility grant.
Staff mobility rules and regulations
Step 4 – Signing of the teaching /training mobility agreement
The next step is the signing of a tripartite agreement between the employee, the host organization and the sending organization (WAB). The agreement contains information about the sending and receiving organization, the mobility participant who is leaving, and the planned course of the mobility, objectives and expected results.
The applicable forms are below:
Mobility Agreement; Staff Mobility For Teaching (STA)
Mobility Agreement; Staff Mobility For Training (STT)
Step 5- Signing of the financial agreement between WAB and the employee
Before leaving, it is necessary to sign an agreement on the responsibilities and rules in connection with the mobility granted. The amount of the grant depends on the length and location of the stay. The grant is awarded to subsidize living expenses and teaching or participation in training. The grant is transferred to the outgoing employee’s bank account at Santander Bank maintained in EURO currency.
