Following the launch of the Life-long Learning Programme (LLP) back in 2007, the European Commission started a new activity under the Erasmus programme: Erasmus staff trainings, offering an excellent opportunity to participate in different forms of training abroad, such as job shadowing (staff members from a HEI go to another HEI to work there for a certain period) or attending job-related conferences and workshops. Despite its success, at the present moment a coordinated source of information on the opportunities available for staff training still does not exist, and too often potential participants are faced with the difficulty of finding information, and HEIs with promoting their activities or finding the appropriate person for job-shadowing.

The IMOTION project – Integration and Promotion of Staff Training Courses at Universities across Europe aims at solving these obstacles. The idea of the project is to create an online platform (http://staffmobility.eu/) where HEIs can promote their staff trainings and where HEIs’ staff can easily find the opportunity they are looking for. This platform will help:

·         HEIs organising staff trainings to promote their events;

·         HEIs organising job shadowing to look for appropriate people;

·         HEIs staff to find the appropriate training or job shadowing they are looking for in an easy way;

·         HEIs to get feedback from the participants at their events.

In order to achieve a better promotion of Erasmus training and increase the overall quality of Erasmus training.

The consortium is convinced that the project can have a great impact, as there are more than 4.000 HEIs in Europe that have an Erasmus Charter and therefore the possibility of participating in Erasmus staff trainings. We would like to reach out to as many HEIs across Europe as we can, and would like to kindly ask for your help disseminating the initiative through your channels of communication.
