The academic staff at the IPU Berlin and its partner universities play an important role in the context of internationalizing research and teaching activities.
The Erasmus+ program supports guest lecturers at European partner universities which hold a valid Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE). The intention for the guest lecturers is to strengthen the European dimension of their guest university through their stay there, supplement the range of study courses it offers and convey their specialist knowledge to students who do not wish or are not in a position to study abroad.
The aim here is to encourage joint study programs at the partner universities wherever possible, as well as the exchange of teaching content and methods.
Stays for teaching purposes within Europe last between two and five days (without travel times in each case); the teaching workload amounts to at least eight hours per stay or week commenced. For the special program Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina a minimum stay of 5 days (both without travel time) is required, the minimum teaching time is 8 hours.
