What is short mobility within the ECIU University?
It is not compatible with simultaneous participation in other mobility programs for which you have already been selected, except in the case where the ECIU activity is planned at the same university where you have been accepted for exchange mobility (in this case there is no additional financial support).
Build your network of connections by working with other students, faculty, experts, business and organization representatives from different backgrounds.
Enhance your intercultural skills, share practices and ideas, develop the ability to solve problems and work in a team.
You may have the opportunity to further develop the proposed solutions, create new services, products, research opportunities, start-ups and spin-offs.
All the challenges and micro-modules are organized at the partner universities of the ECIU Consortium:
Aalborg University (Denmark), Dublin City University (Ireland), Hamburg University of Technology (Germany), Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (France), Kaunas University of Technology (Lithuania), Linköping University (Sweden), Tampere University (Finland), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain), University of Aveiro (Portugal), University of Stavanger (Norway), University of Twente (Netherlands).
How to Apply
Browse through the challenges available on the Challenge Platform. Sign up on the platform and register for the challenges that interest you most.
Follow the micro-modules that can help you gain additional knowledge or skills.
Fill out the on-line application at the same time that allows you to obtain financial support in the event that physical mobility is planned at the partner university.
The compilation of the UniTrento application does not in any case replace the application for the individual initiatives to be carried out on the ECIU website.
Once your application has been approved, contact international [at] unitn.it to formalize your mobility abroad. Before departure, also check with your Department or Center to find out if prior authorization is required that will allow you to obtain recognition of the activity once you have completed the experience abroad.
In case of physical mobility at one of the ECIU partner universities, you will be able to receive financial support that will help you pay for travel and accommodation expenses abroad:
Maximum 150 euros per day for food and accommodation costs
Maximum 400 euros in total for travel expenses
The duration of physical mobility must not exceed 30 days
There is no financial support in the case of entirely virtual mobility.
Once the experience abroad has been completed and certified, you will receive a Certificate of Participation and a Challenge Supplement which describes the work you have done in more detail. Prior to beginning the activity, the professor responsible for the study course must approve the recognition and students must submit their recognition request to the Student Support Office on the basis of what has been agreed with the professor before the activity begins. The activity can be recognized by UniTrento as free choice credits, elective credits or in other ways according to the regulations of each degree program.
