Erasmus+ ICM

Academic and non-academic staff from Masaryk University can go through the project Erasmus+ ICM on an up to two-week teaching or training placement at a foreign partner university of MU outside the European Union. The list of partner universities for Erasmus+ ICM changes each year depending on the approval of projects, and therefore one year the offer can contain for example Canada or the Dominican Republic and the next year not.

Foreign placements via Erasmus+ ICM are not the same as those through the classical European Erasmus+, since those interested must in the first place go through the CZS selection process, which then nominates candidates for the partner institution. Nomination does not however mean automatic acceptance, because the training/teaching plan must also be approved by the receiving university.

The Erasmus+ ICM project also functions in the opposite direction – staff from selected universities can be invited to Masaryk University.

Participation Conditions

  • Within Erasmus+ ICM there are two types of placement: teaching and training
    • Teaching placement involves giving lectures at the receiving university. It is expected of the teacher that at the receiving university they will engage in teaching activities (lectures, consultations for PhD students, workshops, …) for students with a length of a minimum of 8 hours for 5 working days.
    • Training placement has as its main aim the sharing of experience between both institutions (workshops, shadowing, etc.). For the training placement the employee can apply both as the trainer and the trainee. The training can be focused on any kind of administrative activity on which both universities agree, but must at the same time be in accordance with the job description of the employee at MU. This may involve a placement at the partner university, i.e. observing an experienced employee (job-shadowing), practical/expert training, study visit, workshop or seminar. It is expected that there will be a content of at least 8 hours for 5 working days. It is not possible to pay for participation in a conference from an Erasmus+ ICM grant.
  • The length of each placement is 5 or 12 days (according to tables), in which the travel is not included in the length of the placement, but is financially supported (i.e. a grant can be awarded for the day of travel immediately preceding the first day of the programme and for the day of travel following the last day of the programme).
  • MU staff with an employment contract can participate in the project, including also staff on a DPP or a DPČ (Agreement to Perform a Job – a short-term employment contract) (depending on the priorities of the given faculty/economic centre).
  • All activities are reflected in the so-called Mobility Agreement for Teaching/Training (which you can find in the Documents section), which the employee completes before the start of the mobility.
  • Staff with special needs can ask for a special grant. The application is submitted before the start of the summer and winter semesters and approved by the Steering Committee for the Erasmus+ programme.
