There is no cadre requirement for staff employed at Istanbul Atlas University; staff who have an employment contract with Istanbul Atlas University can benefit from the activities. The Staff whose cadre is at another university and who work under a contract at another university apply for mobility at the university at which they actually work, not at the place where they have employees. As there is no service contract between the staff employed at Istanbul Atlas University and the higher education institution, these persons cannot benefit from staff mobility.

Training events or part-time training can be the subject of the training activity.

Activity Duration

Mobility for staff training, at least 2 consecutive working days, excluding travel to EU member states and third countries associated to the programme ; At least 5 consecutive working days for mobility with third countries not associated to the programme. In both cases, the maximum duration of the activity is a maximum of 2 months.

If the beneficiary's activity in the context of staff training mobility lasts less than 2 days, except for the force majeure stated in the certificate of attendance, the activity is considered invalid and the grant is not paid to the beneficiary. If the force majeure can be proven, activities for which the minimum time cannot be achieved will be accepted; The grant is awared for the time spent and the travel expenses are paid according to the distance calculator. The center must be contacted before an event or situation can be considered a valid reason.

Staff mobility can be achieved by combining teaching and training activities. Teaching or training can be carried out in more than one host institution / organization in the same country. This considered as an individual teaching or training activity for which the minimum duration applies.

Grant Support

The grant given to the academic or administrative staff benefiting from the staff training mobility is a contribution, and the grant is not intended to cover all the expenses related to the period spent abroad. The grant amounts for the academic year 2021-2022 are shown in the table.

Staff training is a full-time activity and grants are paid for full-time training. For this reason, the training program should be set out in the Staff Training Mobility Agreement (Staff Mobility For Training - Mobility Agreement) on a daily basis.

The final amount to be paid for the mobility period is determined by multiplying the number of mobility days with the daily grant amount valid for the country of destination and adding the travel contribution to this amount.

The "distance calculator" required by the National Agency is used for the participant's travel expense report. After the respective calculation, the travel allowance is calculated using the following table for the kilometers collected for the distance between 2 points. The number of kilometers calculated in the distance calculator is the round trip for the grant in the table below and is not multiplied by two. The transfer of staff does not affect the distance achieved using the above distance calculation.

Staff who choose Green Travel type are given individual support for up to 4 days for travel days.
