Description of the Activity

Who can participate

Permanent or contract academic staff actually working at Istanbul Atlas University or administrative staff employed full-time or part-time are eligible to apply.

The Staff whose position is at another university and who work under a contract at other 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

Activity Area

Staff Training Mobility is the field of activity offering full/part time employment at Istanbul Atlas University and training in one of the advertised quotas actually working in the facility. Conference participation cannot be supported within the scope of the activity.

Activity Duration

The minimum number of working days is 5 consecutive working days, the maximum duration of the activity is 2 months.

Grant Support

The grant given to staff benefiting from staff training mobility is a contribution and the grant is not intended to cover all costs related to the stay abroad. The final amount to be paid for the mobility period is calculated by multiplying the number of mobility days by the daily grant amount valid for the target country and adding the contribution to travel expenses.

Travel Support Round trip support between third countries associated to the programme and third countries not associated to the programme is calculated using the “Distance Calculator”.

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.
