West University of Timișoara will implement the "Grants and inter-institutional cooperation" programme concerning the implementation of the EEA and Norway Financial Mechanism 2009-2014 that allocates Romania funds amounting to 4.444.444 Euro in the period June 2013- December 2016.
Thus, through the EEA Grants student and staff mobilities will be funded by Mobility Projects.
Students from Romanian universities may undertake a study of 3 to 12 months (within the same academic year) or a placement period of 2 to 12 months (within the same academic year) in Norway, Liechtenstein or Iceland.
Mobility periods can be combined (study+placement).
Student mobility for study is undertaken in the framework of “inter-institutional agreements” previously concluded between the sending and host institutions and regarding student mobility for placements, organisations that can host student placements are companies, training centres, research centres or other organisations, including HEIs.
Eligible students are any students enrolled in any cycle of education (graduate, master, PhD). These students are considered “beneficiaries of EEA grants” and are equivalent to Erasmus students.
Before starting their mobility, the EEA students will sign a contract for study or placement, which will include the following documents:
a “learning agreement”/”training agreement” which will describe the study/placement programme; this agreement will be approved and signed by the sending HEI, the hosting HEI and the student concerned;
“The EEA Student Charter” detailing the rights and obligations of students during their mobility abroad, which is similar to the Erasmus Student Charter.
Besides the above mentioned documents, for placements, the contract will also include:
A “commitment for quality in mobility” which describes the rights and obligations of all parties participating in the placement abroad.
At the end of the period spent abroad, the hosting institutions will provide the student and sending institution with a transcript of records which will confirm that the agreed programme has been followed and will detail the results obtained by the student. The sending institution will validate the entire mobility period, according to the study/placement contract, preferably using the ECTS system. The EEA mobility period will also be included in the Diploma Supplement. Students with special needs can request a specific grant, after being selected for a mobility period.
Monthly grant for WUT students undertaking a study or placement mobility to one of the Donor States is 1200 € lump sum. Additionally: 500 € lump sum/person for travel and insurance.

participation in seminars, workshops, training courses, study visits, conferences, job shadowing for teaching and non-teaching staff from Romanian universities in an institution from a DS and reciprocally; the duration is between 2 days and 2 weeks (excuding travel time);
The sending and hosting institutions will first agree on a work programme to be followed by the staff undertaking the mobility (teaching or training). The Programme will contain at least the following: the scope and general objectives of the mission, the expected results and a concrete schedule for the entire period. When it is about a member of the teaching staff undertaking a teaching mission, the mission should be initiated within an inter-institutional agreement existing between the sending and host institutions.
