The administrative and grant agenda related to the Erasmus+ programme is managed by the CZS.


Participation Conditions

  • This activity allows teaching staff at university institutions to teach at a foreign partner university institution. The mobility of the employee can take place in any field/academic discipline.
  • Any academic employee of the university can participate including those on part-time or short-term contracts.
  • The academic employee can be a citizen of any country but they must have an employment contract with the sending university institution in the Czech Republic (this can also be a short-term contract (DPP or DPČ in Czech) – but the agreement must include the possibility of business trips and the right to draw travel expenses, otherwise it would be a case of unauthorised use of the funds provided).
  • The employee’s mobility can take place in any field/academic discipline. Teaching placements take place with a length of a minimum of two consecutive days and a maximum of two months (teaching in an extent of a minimum of 8 hours per week or shorter period of placement) at a partner university institution with an ECHE. Teaching placements depend on the existence and validity of an inter-institutional agreement between the individual workplaces.
  • The mobility has to take place in a programme country which is neither the country of the sending organisation nor the country of residence of the employee.
    • In the case of going to the staff member’s country of origin it is necessary to show that the staff member is long-term resident in the Czech Republic, which can be demonstrated by submitting the following documents:
      • an employment contract or DPČ for a minimum of one year
      • confirmation of studies for a period of more than one year
      • other documents (tax domicile in the Czech Republic, lease, etc.)
  • It is not possible to cover a conference from this programme.


    ONLINE mobility Erasmus+ STA/STT:
    • The employee’s mobility, in which teaching would take place exclusively online, is possible if the participant travels to foreign country and his / her participation at host institution in the host country is justified and substantiated by supporting documents (eg. travel documents, proof of payment for accommodation, etc.). In this case, it is eligible physical mobility for which a grant entitlement arises. This is particularly justified if the effect of COVID-19 persists.
    • Such mobility must be approved by the immediate superior and the approval has to be sent by e-mail to the relevant coordinator at CZS (person AFTER NOMINATION) at the time of submitting the Mobility Agreement document for mobility approval.
