About Mobilities

In order to achieve the goal of advancing teaching, research, networking, and policy advice in the selected thematic areas, MEDASTAR project will bundle existing initiatives and institute new initiatives using mobilities that are addressed to the particular target groups. In particular, they include new initiatives regarding academic teaching, professional training and further education, outreach and policy advice, and partnerships and network with our partners.

Exchanging Opportunities

The project will strengthen the existing graduate and undergraduate programs in Egypt and Lebanon by improving their contents and teaching methodologies used. It will provide opportunities to exchange the knowledge, skills and experiences of the academic staff through mobilities to host universities in Europe, and through interactions with the academic staff and researchers at the host universities.

Applicants should note that the number and duration of available scholarships are subject to review and may vary according to the Steering Committee selection criteria.

  • 60 Undergraduates, 54 Master, 41 Doctorates, 23 Post-doctorates, and 21 Staff Mobilities from which 12 will be for Academic Staff and 9 for personnel involved in institutional building.
