Overseas mobility – outgoing teaching staff and researchers

Ca’ Foscari University of Venice has drawn up numerous scientific and cultural cooperation agreements with non-European universities and institutions with the aim of developing joint teaching, research and training activities, and of promoting the mobility of the University’s professors and researchers.

The majority of such agreements allow the University’s professors and researchers to participate in study and research exchanges (minimum duration: 1 working week, from Monday to Friday), depending on the organization of the partner university’s scientific and teaching activities.  

Ca’ Foscari University of Venice will reimburse the travelling expenses only of its participating professors and researchers. The Call for Application lists the maximum amounts for each country and the documents required for reimbursement purposes.
