Erasmus+ non EU
For staff mobility activities outside Europe Erasmus+ offers 2 possibilities:
Erasmus+ Staff Training
As a staff member you can make use of this funding possibility to follow a training programme outside 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. These possibilities include joint research, 1-on-1 job shadowing, attending a Summer or Winter School or participating in an International Staff Training Week. It is unfortunately not possible to visit a conference with this grant.
