Who can participate

The Erasmus+ ICM programme allows academic staff  (employed by Ca’ Foscari to spend a teaching and/or training period or observation mobility in one of the partner Universities. The purposes of the mobility are exchanging skills, enriching the school offer, providing students and teachers with different approaches).

Staff mobility for teaching and for training is based on an Inter-institutional Agreement activated between the partner university and Ca’ Foscari University of Venice for the academic year in which the mobility is taken and in accordance with the Mobility Agreement. 


Teaching assignments can come in various forms and take place as seminars, lectures and tutorials. Actual teaching in this context should require the teacher to be physically present with the students. A minimum number of 8 compulsory hours of teaching per week is required. Although email tutoring or any other forms of distance learning as well as preparation are highly encouraged, they do not count in the minimum number of 8 hours per week.

Training assignments support the professional development of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice teaching staff in the form of training events abroad (excluding conferences) and job shadowing/observation periods/training at a partner institutions.

Financial support

Beneficiaries will receive an individual support as a contribution to their costs during their mobility (€ 180,00 per day until the 14th day and € 126,00 per day for the following days).

Furthermore, travels (1 round-trip flight ticket per beneficiary) will be covered by the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility project and provided by Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, according to the fixed amount assigned per destination.
