Interactive Mobility Handbook
The Interactive Mobility Handbook is a hands-on guide for the Joint Virtual Administrative Officers of the CHARM-EU Alliance that supports the management and administration of all mobilities connected to the joint master’s degree programme of the Alliance.
Chapter 1 provides an overview of the mobility opportunities, the main actions and the corresponding funding incentives regarding both student and staff mobility connected to the joint master’s programme.
Chapter 2 describes in depth the student mobility system and the mobility management actions that need to be taken by the beneficiaries. The chapter also gives a detailed step-by-step guide on how to manage the mobilities and the funding by the different stakeholder groups involved in the mobility management procedures, especially the colleagues of the Joint Virtual Administrative Office. Chapter 2 also contains annexes that describe the institutional administrative procedures of some of the partner universities of the CHARM-EU Alliance.
Chapter 3 concerns the staff mobility activities, including the mobility options of academic and non-academic staff as well as extra-academic actors. This chapter – following a similar logic as in the case of Chapter 2 – elaborates on the procedures of the mobility process for both the beneficiaries and the colleagues of the Joint Virtual Administrative Office.
Chapter 4 gives a detailed overview of the financial incentives to be used in relation to the different mobility actions. The chapter reviews in depth the student mobility grants, including the top-up and supplementary grants, the staff mobility grant opportunities, and the institutional funds supporting the Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programmes.
Chapter 5 provides an overview of the inclusion and diversity agenda in European Higher Education and the Erasmus+ Programme while also identifying tangible steps and best practices for CHARM-EU as well as organisations, students, staff and beyond to create awareness for inclusive mobility experiences.
Chapter 6 reviews the different options for environmentally sustainable mobilities within the CHARM-EU Alliance. The chapter shares best practices and useful tips to promote and implement sustainable mobilities, including the financial sources to be used and some information on how to plan sustainable travels.
Finally, Chapter 7 describes the quality assurance mechanisms and standards used in connection with mobilities undertaken within the joint master’s degree programme of the CHARM-EU Alliance. The chapter also describes mobility-related monitoring and audit actions.
