Hurry –Erasmus funds available for staff mobility for a limited time only!

EurosThe Fusion Investment Fund has support available for Erasmus Staff Mobility. The fund is available for academic and Professional Support staff (full or part time, providing you have an established BU contract of greater than 1 year) and can be used to support to receive training, to undertake teaching or to invite someone from another EU organisation (excluding UK) to BU. It’s a great scheme and we are pleased to have supported a large number of staff in the past to undertake travel to teach or train.

As all travel must be completed by 30.06.16, this round is the last where you will be guaranteed to have an outcome to enable travel ahead of this date -applications will be accepted until 9am 26.02.16.

 

Teaching: If you want to teach in the EU (many institutions are happy for you to teach in English), BU needs to have an Erasmus agreement with the institution and you can find this out on the Global BU webpages. You just need to undertake a minimum of 8 hours per week and you must be visiting the institution for between 2 days and 2 months. You can also invite one of BU’s Erasmus partners based outside of the UK, but within the EU to teach at BU with this funding.

Training: If you want to undertake training in the EU (this could be work-shadowing a workshop or a bespoke training plan), you can do so at an educational institution, at an enterprise or a range of other organisations – BU does not need to hold an existing agreement with the host institution. You just need to undertake a minimum of 8 hours per week and you must be visiting the institution/ organisation for between 2 days and 2 months.

 

All information can be found on the FIF webpage but if you still have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email or call us on 61204/ 68250.

Call for Researcher Links Travel Grant applications

Last week the British Council launched a call for early-career researchers to propose an international research placement. Researchers that reside in the UK can apply for funding to spend up to 3 months at a university or research institution in one of the 19 partner countries, and those residing in one of the partner countries can apply for funding to come to the UK. All research areas are covered, including the natural sciences, humanities and social sciences, but some countries have priority areas.

The call guidelines, a list of the 19 countries and the application form can be found here. The deadline is 24 November 2013.

Please contact your School’s RKE Officer in RKE Operations if you are interested in this call.
