An important part of the NordPlus program is to stimulate teachers and/or other staff to go to other partner universities for lecturing, exchange of experiences, pedagogical development, curriculum advances, development of common programs etc.

Teachers and/or staff of any nationality employed at HEIs in the participating countries may be awarded a Nordplus grant for exchanges in another Nordic or Baltic country. The exchange can include teaching, tutoring, development of teaching materials etc. It is also possible to use these grants for activities connected to work placements and collaboration with the labour market.

The minimum duration of the exchange is 8 teaching/working hours.

The following rules apply to Nordplus teacher/staff mobility grants:

  • Confirmation of grant award shall be signed before payment is made (see grant form to the right)
  • A final report on the exchange shall be submitted by the teacher after the exchange has been completed

The salary is paid by your home university but expenses are paid for according to the following:

  • Travel (to and from Iceland): €660
  • Travel (to and from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Norway, Sweden): €330
Accommodation/board rates (according to the NordPlus handbook):
  • Example: 1 day teacher mobility, 70 euro + travel grant
  • Example: 5 (working) days teacher mobility, 355 euro + travel grant
  • Example: 8 days teacher mobility, the maximum rate is 355 euro + 70 euro = 425 euro + travel grant
