Incoming Staff


Constanta Maritime University encourages international mobility of academic staff. Below you will find an elaborate overview of the Erasmus+ funding possibilities that you can make use of  both within and outside Europe.

Mobility Within Europe

For activities in the European Union countries, including Iceland, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Norway and Turkey, you can make use of Erasmus+ funding for staff training and staff teaching. The Erasmus+ Programme allows academic staff (employed by institutions and organisations participating in the programme) to spend a teaching and/or training period at Constanta Maritime University.

The purposes of the mobility are exchanging skills, enriching the educational offer, providing students and teachers with different approaches.

Staff mobility for teaching and/or training is based on an Inter- Institutional Agreement activated between the home university and Constanta Maritime University for the academic year in which the mobility is taken and in accordance with the Mobility Agreement.

Mobility Outside Europe

Under International credit mobility, a HEI in a Partner Country can send its staff to a partner HEI in a Programme Country, and vice versa. Staff can spend a teaching and/or training period abroad for up to 2 months. The minimum mobility period for staff is 5 days. Programme Countries are those countries participating fully in the Erasmus+ programme.

Partner Countries are all the other countries in the world, grouped together in different regions. But not all Partner Countries are eligible for international credit mobility. Switzerland, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, the Vatican City State, as well as Iran, Iraq, Yemen and the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates) are not eligible for international credit mobility.

International credit mobility is open to participants from HEIs established in Programme and Partner Countries.

Erasmus+ Staff Training

As a staff member you can make use of this funding possibility to follow a training programme within Europe. The aim of an Erasmus+ Staff Training is to gain knowledge or new insights from colleagues or projects in another institute of higher education.

Your stay abroad must last 2 to 60 days (excluding travel days). The grant includes a fixed amount for travel compensation and a daily allowance costs and is arranged at your home university. You have to arrange the Erasmus+ Training programme and signatures from yourself, your Erasmus+ Institutional Coordinator and the Erasmus+ Institutional Coordinator at the receiving institution.

 

Erasmus+ Staff Teaching

Teaching staff may apply for an Erasmus+ Staff Teaching grant. The teaching may only take place at an institution in accordance with a bilateral Erasmus+ agreement. For information about the availability or set up of such an agreement you can contact your Erasmus+ Office.

These teaching periods may take 2 to 60 days, with a minimum of 8 teaching hours per week. This minimum also applies to stays of less than a week. The grant includes a fixed amount for travel compensation and a daily allowance for costs. The request for Erasmus+ Staff Teaching needs to be submitted by e-mail directly to the Erasmus+ Office (erasmusplus[at]cmu-edu.eu). Please include Erasmus+ Teaching programme signed by yourself, your Erasmus+ Institutional Coordinator and the Erasmus+ Institutional Coordinator at the receiving institution.

Erasmus+ Partner Countries Mobility

Academic staff coming from universities located in partner countries (specific regions outside Europe) with which Constanta Maritime University has signed an Inter-Institutional agreement can spend a mobility period at Constanta Maritime University for training or teaching purposes.
