IPAM’s International Office develops initiatives in the field of international academic cooperation and mobility, in line with the mission of developing global professionals.

It manages and promotes cooperation agreements and programmes with partner Universities with the objective of providing our students, academic staff, researchers and other staff members the opportunity to benefit from a teaching experience abroad, thus contributing to their personal and professional enrichment, such as by accompanying teachers and researchers who visit the University and greatly contribute to the development and recognition of this institution’s teaching quality.

As a student, there are several Mobility Programmes that you can benefit from.

International Week

very year IPAM organizes an International Week, an event aimed at Professors and colleagues from International Relations Offices of Partner Universities. The 17th International Week is scheduled to take place from 27 February to 3 March, 2023.  For more information, please contact:

Mobility for Lecturers and Staff (Outgoing)

IPAM encourages the entire community of teachers and staff to carry out a period of international mobility, considering it not only a fundamental activity for its internationalization process, but also a vehicle for the personal and professional development of its employees. To this end, a competition for staff mobility is organized annually (usually in October) through which grants financed by the Programme Erasmus + are awarded.

There are two types of mobility for employees:

Mobility for Teaching Missions (STA)

This programme is intended for teaching staff and mainly includes lecturing classes (minimum of 8 hr), over a 5-day period (funded). Occasionally networking and contact hours may be added to this number. The existence of a interinstitutional agreement valid for the year of mobility in the teaching area is mandatory. The list of partnerships can be found on our Intranet.

Mobility for Training (STT)

This programme is intended mainly for non-teaching staff and the objective is to network and practice job shadowing with the counterpart departments in institutions in the European Union with PIC (Higher Education or Companies). In this case, it is not necessary to have a partnership between the institutions.  It is suggested, for example, that staff participate in international weeks; consult some examples .
