EEA PROGRAMME - BRIEF PRESENTATION

Logo EEA Grants 2009-2014

Programme duration: 2009-2014

Official website: www.eeagrants.org.



The following will be funded by Mobility Projects:

a). Student mobility:

This action allows students from Romanian universities to undertake a study  of 3 to 12 months (within the same academic year) or a placement  period of 2 to 12 months (within the same academic year) in one of the DS;reciprocally, it allows students from DS universities to undertake a study or placement period  under the same duration conditions as above (within the same academic year) in one of the Romanian HEIs. Mobility periods can be combined (study+placement).

Student mobility for study is undertaken in the framework of “inter-institutional agreements” previously concluded between the sending and host institutions, both institutions needing to have an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) approved by the European Commission.

“Placement” defines a period of “training” or “practice”. Organisations that can host student placements are companies, training centres, research centres or other organisations, including HEIs.

Students will be selected by the universities where they are enrolled, through a clear and transparent process (see paragraph 4.2 “Selection of participants”). Eligible students are any students enrolled in any cycle of education (graduate, master, PhD). These students are considered “beneficiaries of EEA grants” and are equivalent to Erasmus students.

NB: Please note that a student who received a grant under the framework of the 1-st Call would not be eligible to be selected under this 2-nd Call.

Before starting their mobility, the EEA students will sign a contract for study or placement, which will include the following documents:

  • a “learning agreement”/”training agreement” which will describe the study/placement programme;  this agreement will be approved and signed by the sending HEI, the hosting HEI and the student concerned;
  • “The EEA Student Charter” detailing the rights and obligations of students during their mobility abroad, which is similar to the Erasmus Student Charter.

The document is available  at www.burse-see.ro

Besides the above mentioned documents, for placements, the contract will also include:

  • A “commitment for quality in mobility” which describes the rights and obligations of all parties participating in the placement abroad.

The document is available  at www.burse-see.ro

At the end of the period spent abroad, the hosting institutions will provide the student and sending institution with a transcript of records which will confirm that the agreed programme has been followed and will detail the results obtained by the student. The sending institution will validate the entire mobility period, according to the study/placement contract, preferably using the ECTS system. The EEA mobility period will also be included in the Diploma Supplement.  Particularly in the case of a placement period that is not included in the student’s curriculum, the sending institution should validate this placement at least by including it in the Diploma Supplement.

EEA students are exempt of tuition fees or fees for enrolment, exams and access to laboratories and libraries in the hosting institution. During the EEA study/placement abroad, the students will continue to receive any scholarships or loans that they were benefiting from already in their country of origin.

Students with special needs can request a specific grant, after being selected for a mobility period.

b). Mobility of staff :

This action provides funding for the following :

- teaching missions of a duration between 2 days and   two weeks (excluding travel time)  for teaching staff from Romanian universities in an DS university and reciprocally (minimum 8 teaching hours per week are compulsory);

- participation in seminars, workshops, training courses, study visits, conferences, job shadowing for teaching and non-teaching staff from Romanian universities in an institution from a DS and reciprocally;  the duration is between 2 days and 2 weeks (excuding travel time);

The sending and hosting institutions will first agree on a work programme to be followed by the staff undertaking the mobility (teaching or training). The Programme will contain at least the following: the scope and general objectives of the mission, the expected results and a concrete schedule for the entire period. When it is about a member of the teaching staff undertaking a teaching mission, the mission should be initiated within an inter-institutional agreement existing between the sending and host institutions.

Beneficiaries are selected by HEIs through a clear and transparent process (see paragraph 4.2 “Selection of participants”). They will be considered “EEA beneficiaries” and equivalent to “Erasmus staff”.

NB: Please, note that during the whole period of the Programme (2014-2016) no more than one mobility per person will be granted (for example, a person who received a grant under the framework of the 1-st Call would not receive any other grant under the framework of the 2-nd, 3-rd or 4-th Calls). This restriction does not refer to the Preparatory Visits

Special needs beneficiaries can request a specific grant after their selection for a mobility period.
