Erasmus+ Mobility Grant for Training Purposes

Erasmus+ mobility grant for training purposes provides staff members at OsloMet with the opportunity for professional development required for their current job by visiting a partner institution, enterprise, organisation, school, government agency or similar, in Europe.

What you learn must be useful in your everyday work and contribute to internationalisation at OsloMet.  

Where can I go?

Please contact the international coordinator at your department or faculty to find out where you can go. You may also visit enterprises, organisations, schools, government agencies etc. in the Erasmus + countries.
