To better meet the diverse learning and training needs of doctoral candidates and to ensure equal opportunities, doctoral candidates and recent graduates can undertake beside long-term study or traineeship mobility periods abroad also short-term mobilities.
Length of mobilities
Standard long-term mobilities:
2 - 6 months. Information about long-term mobilities for doctoral students is available in the section Erasmus.
- Student mobility for studies (SMS)
- Student mobility for practical training (SMP)
- Traineeship for fresh graduates
Length of mobilities:
Length: 5 - 30 days
Travel days do not count towards the length of mobility, i.e. mobility = number of days of stay.
It is possible that the planned mobility is longer than 30 days, but support from the Erasmus+ programme will only go for 30 days. In the UIS, the mobility will be registered as two mobilities.
1. COSTS OF STAY
Students are entitled to get individual support:
|up to the 14th day of activity||70 EUR/day|
|15th to the 30th day of activity||50 EUR/day|
Without scholarship increase for traineeships (within long-term mobilities the scholarship is lower for SMS than for SMP, there is no difference in the individual support in case of short-term mobilities).
2. EXTRA FUNDING
New Erasmus+ programme for the period of 2021-2027 offers additional sources for extra funding:
A. Green Erasmus+
- Sustainable means of transport (green travel) is defined as travel that uses low-emissions means of transport for the main part of the travel, such as bus, train or car-pooling.
- The amount of travel support is 50 EUR/participant (paid after the mobility) for mobilities to places over 1199 km
B. Additional costs linked to participants with fewer opportunities
- potential barriers of participants with fewer opportunities:
- disabilities, health problems, cultural differences, barriers linked to education systems, barriers linked to discrimination, social barriers, economic barriers, geographical barriers
- two main groups:
- participants with physical, mental and health related conditions
- the increased scholarship serves to cover additional financial support based on the real costs. You can use e.g. special accommodation, preparatory visits, accompanying persons, adapted teaching materials, etc.
- participants with economic barriers, with children / other dependents, etc.
A) students with economic barrier
- entitlement to child benefit
- students with social scholarship
B) students with children / other dependents
- confirmation that proves this fact
C) other participants who identify themselves as participants with fewer opportunities, set by the EC Programme Guide. In such cases, the previous consultation with IRO is necessary.
Other rules, instructions and information about short-term doctoral mobilities
How to apply for short-term doctoral mobilities?
- if the call for applications is open, just apply by filling out the electronic form here.
- if the call is not open, contact IRO FTA with a request about the opening date of the next call for applications for this type of mobility
Where to carry out practical training?
- as in the case of standard long-term mobilities for traineeships, the receiving organisation can be:
- any public or private organisation active in the labour market or in the fields of education, training, youth, research and Innovation (for example, a public or private, a small, medium or large enterprise (including social enterprises); a public body at local, regional or national level; embassies or consular offices of the sending EU Member State or third country associated to the Programme; a social partner or other representative of working life, including chambers of commerce, craft/professional associations and trade unions; a research institute; a foundation; a school/institute/educational centre (at any level, from pre-school to upper secondary education, and including vocational education and adult education);
- a non-profit organisation, association, NGO;
- a body providing career guidance, professional counselling and information services
- a HEI from an EU Member State or third country associated to the Programme awarded with an ECHE, or a HEI from a third country not associated to the Programme recognised by competent authorities that has signed inter-institutional agreements with their partners from an EU Member State or third country associated to the Programme, before the mobility takes place.
- The following types of organisations are not eligible as receiving organisations for student mobility for traineeships: EU institutions and other EU bodies including specialised agencies (their exhaustive list is available on the website); organisations managing EU programmes such as Erasmus+ National Agencies (in order to avoid a possible conflict of interests and/or double funding).
Is it possible to use this support for attending a conference?
Is a student, who has already used up 12 months of Erasmus+ support, eligible to apply?
Is a student, who has currently interrupted studies, eligible to apply?
- No. (S/He can apply, but cannot travel while not being a student).
Is a student, who has already carried out the mobility, eligible to apply?
- No. This support is only for future mobilities.
Can a student travel to his/her country of birth (or country of permanent residence) for this type of mobility?
What are the conditions and requirements for this short-term mobility for fresh graduates?
– the conditions and requirements for this short-term mobility are the same, as they are for standard long-term traineeships for fresh graduates, i.e.:
- applications submitted before State doctoral exams,
- Ithe length of the mobility is counted in the total Erasmus+ support used throughout the doctoral studies (i.e. max. 12 months of funding),
- fresh graduates can apply only for SMP, mobilities for studies are not allowed,
- it’s necessary to carry out the mobility until 12 months after graduation,
- student can carry out this type of mobility more than once, but provided rules mentioned in the points I) to IV) are followed
Is it possible to use this support for mobilities to outermost regions and overseas countries?
- full list of programme countries is available online here.
Are days of weekends counted into the mobility period?
- if the weekend is in the middle of the mobility, it is counted.
- if the weekend is before or after the mobility, detailed justification is necessary!!
Is there a requirement of the existing agreement between CZU and the receiving institution in case of these short-term mobilities?
- if the student applies for short-term mobility for traineeship (SMP-S), no agreement is necessary
- if the student applies for short-term mobility for studies (SMS-S), e.g. summer school, the IIA is necessary (if there is any IIA, consult with faculty IRO)
Is a LA / LAT obligatory as it is in the case of standard long-term mobilities?
– yes, it is – the LA/LAT is absolutely the same, as for long-term mobilities for SMS/SMP (be careful – in case of mobilities for studies, students must prepare OLA, where there is an option to be ticked “short-term mobility”
- beside LA/LAT students must submit also “Statutory Declaration” and “Application for mobility abroad under the frame of the Erasmus+ programme”
- students submit the documents mentioned above after they are selected and nominated by the faculty IRO
Are there any rules for travel insurance? Must the participant manage it by himself/herself?
- It is the same as for long-term mobilities for SMS/SMP, i.e. that CZU students manage their travel insurance with ERV insurance company, and fresh graduates manage their travel insurance via ERAPO.
