Staff mobility

Staff mobility

Do you want to visit one of NHH's partner institutions in Europe to teach or learn more about your field from colleagues and experts at higher education institutions or other organisations in Europe?

All NHH staff members have the opportunity to apply for Erasmus+ funding for teaching or training mobility to develop their competence.

Please note that NHH in most cases cannot fund staff mobilities that last more than one week.
