Internationalization - Staff Mobility

If you are interested in doing a mobility period, you must consider that there are some rules for mobility in FCNAUP or abroad.

Staff Mobility

Welcome to FCNAUP!

If you are interested in mobility for teaching or non-teaching staff, please register on the platform U.Porto Internacional.

You should also send an e-mail with the following:

  • Curriculum Vitae;
  • Intended work plan.

E-mail: [email protected]

Under the Erasmus + Programme, the University of Porto has two calls annually for the mobility of teaching staff in teaching and non-teaching staff in training missions. The applications are announced via institutional e-mail by GRI- FCNAUP.

All teaching and non-teaching staff applications should be formalized in the U.Porto International Platform.

All those interested in mobility within these projects (students, teaching and non-teaching staff) are advised to contact the Internationalisation Department of the FCNAUP to verify the framework of the mobility proposal in the scientific areas and obtain the necessary guidance in the preparation of the application.

There are numerous opportunities for international mobility, which the International Relations Service and GRI are disseminating via dynamic/institutional e-mail, namely:

  • Santander Ibero-American Scholarships for Young Teachers and Researchers;
  • Erasmus Mundus Programme — Action 2;
  • International Cooperation Agreements;
  • Fulbright Programme — USA;

More information at the U.Porto International Platform.

If you intend to undertake mobility to a particular University, the GRI provides support in formalizing the mobility and can help to identify funding opportunities with the SRI.

Considering the relevance of some activities not directly funded by the R&D centres, as well as the importance of non-teaching mobility and initiatives designed by teachers and students, the Rectory of the University of Porto foresees the granting of diversified subsidies under the protocol signed with Santander Bank, which is intended to support the academic community for "teaching mobility (excluding the teaching mobility foreseen under Erasmus + agreements) and non-teaching mobility (workers and students who are not covered by funded programmes)". The grant amount varies according to the proposal submitted and the budget available.

There are two calls for mobility; the respective application deadlines are 15 March and 15 November.

The application should be submitted through the Secretariat of the Vice-Rectory of External Relations and Culture of the U.Porto.
