Ulysseus Mobility Experience
A Ulysseus mobility experience entails a physical or virtual exchange or a combination of these two formats between two or more Ulysseus partner universities and connects students, academics and/or non-academic staff in new and innovative ways. Ulysseus strives to enhance seamless and climate-responsible mobility through intensive cooperation between all consortium members.
Pick your appropriate format
Students, academics and professional staff currently enrolled or employed at any of the Ulysseus universities can take part in a variety of our pilot mobility experiences. Depending on your needs, you will be able to pick appropriate formats.
For example, a mobility experience for an Ulysseus Student can take the form of a classic Erasmus+ semester exchange, a Blended Intensive Program (BIP) that combines physical with virtual elements, or an entirely virtual classroom experience. Ulysseus Academics can partake in researchers’ weeks and workshops to reinforce academic cooperation while Ulysseus Professional Staff are invited to participate in staff exchanges and other forms of (virtual) cooperation and skill advancements.
New and innovative forms of mobility
The Ulysseus mobility experience enriches the general Erasmus+ mobilities in that it focuses on mobilities – virtual, physical or blended – specifically between all Ulysseus universities. Within Ulysseus, there is a focus on new and innovative forms of mobility to provide an inclusive international experience for as many participants as possible. Nevertheless, participants in the Ulysseus mobility experience can often take full advantage of the funds granted by the Erasmus+ Programme. Additionally, there are Ulysseus funds available for select Ulysseus mobility offers. For specific details, please consult with your Erasmus+ contact person at your University.
Sustainability is at the heart of the Ulysseus European University. For physical mobility experiences, green travel alternatives, i.e. train instead of airplane, chosen by participants are strongly recommended (please see the Ulysseus green mobility guide). Its virtual and blended experiences also help in keeping Ulysseus’ carbon footprint as small as possible.
