Within the frame of the new Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme period, doctoral students can also use the Erasmus+ grant for short-term mobilities for the purpose of study or internship abroad.
- Short-term research internships or study stays abroad within the Erasmus+ programme can be completed by full-time as well as part-time doctoral students.
- Short-term study stays can be carried out at foreign institutions in the Erasmus+ programme countries, research internships also in the Erasmus+ partner countries.
- The length of the short-term stay can be 5-30 days.
- The financial support for a stay abroad can be received repeatedly.
|Length (days)||Scholarship amount||Top up amount for students with fewer opportunities|
|until 14th day of activity||70 €/day||100 €|
|from 15th to 30th day of activity||50 €/day||150 €|
The preferred type of stay abroad is a research internship, even in the case of a stay at a university, especially due to simpler administration – it is not necessary to conclude an interinstitutional agreement with a partner university, the stay takes place on the basis of the agreement of the host institution, for example in the form of an agreement with a specific professor.
Participation in a conference cannot be realized as a stay within the Erasmus+ programme; short-term stays of another type might be financed according to the Catalogue of Supports of the VSE Office for Science and Research.
Students with fewer opportunities, i.e. with a health condition, an economic barrier or with children / dependents, can apply for an increase of the grant.
A doctoral student who has an employment relationship at the Prague University of Economics and Business, can also use the possibilities of training or teaching stays abroad within the Erasmus+ programme.
