Erasmus+ Scholarships for Staff Mobility for Teaching or Training at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU)

Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU) extends an invitation to academic representatives from UQ to apply for mobility funding intended to strengthen existing collaborations. This particular call for Erasmus+ grant applications is intended to further develop established engagement in the areas of Neuroscience, Psychology, Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences, Biomedical Sciences, Genetics, Medicine, Physics, and Business.  

Program options include:

  • Staff Mobility for Training (STT): 5-10 consecutive days (not including travel days).
  • Staff Mobility for Teaching (STA): 5-10 consecutive days (not including travel days), with at least eight hours of lectures.

Research specific activities are not eligible for funding.

The visit to LMU must occur between 1 March 2018 and 30 June 2019.

You must be able to demonstrate a well-established collaboration with an LMU academic staff member to be eligible for this round of funding. A letter of support from your key collaborator at LMU will be well regarded. For more information about current collaboration and partnership initiatives, please contact the UQ Global Engagement Office at globalstrategy@uq.edu.au.

Funding details

  • 120 € per day
  • 1100 € travel expenses

The LMU coordinator will specify the exact amount and provide more detailed information to the accepted staff member in an Erasmus+ Grant Agreement.

Please be aware that the Erasmus+ Program provides no insurance.

UQ staff who receive Erasmus+ funding will be eligible for insurance while undertaking authorised UQ business and must comply with the UQ Travel Policy.
