  • full professors (tenured and tenure-track);

Activities, mobility grants and applications

Mobility grants are exclusively awarded to staff wishing to spend a period teaching abroad as part of a mobility programme drawn up between institutions that are holders of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE).

The award of Erasmus STA grants will give priority to mobility activities that:

  • are fully integrated into the study programme of the host institution;
  • lead to the production of new teaching materials;
  • will be used to consolidate and broaden relations between departments, and to promote Ca’ Foscari didactic offer at the hosting university and to prepare future cooperation projects.


To guarantee the participation of the greatest number of teachers possible, priority will be given to teachers who have not been involved in the Erasmus mobility programme in recent years.

The duration ranges from:

  • a minimum of 2 consecutive working days (excluding travel – maximum 2 days), with a minimum of 8 hours of lessons in total;
  • to a maximum of 7 days (2 travel days and 5 teaching activity days).

The allowance is calculated on the basis of the tables attached to the mobility call.

Following the publication of the call, teachers wishing to participate should fill in the request form and attach the required documents then send to them to the Mobility Unit.

Selection List of teachers chosen to undertake a teaching assignment will be drawn up on the basis of the requests received and in compliance with the Erasmus regulations; a list of eligible teachers allowed to carry out a teaching activity without benefiting from European funds will be available.
