Fundamental Principles Regarding Evaluation and Election Process

The election process, among the applicants, within the scope of rules and priorities determined by the European Commission and Headquarters, must be carried out with the assessment criteria applicable to the whole staff in an equal extension determined by higher education institution.

The higher education institution is responsible for documenting all the files related to the election process when it is necessary.  In addition, the higher education institution must provide an unbiased, transparent and fair election process for the staff who will benefit from the mobility.

Conformity Evaluation

At least one of the countries, which will get involved in to the mobility, should be a member of the European Union. Since Turkey hasn’t been a member, the host or invited country should definitely be a member of the European Union.

 

The staff who want to benefit from mobility should submit their designed academic plan and program, which is in accordance with the minimum official university criteria.

The staff who want to benefit from mobility should be employed as a full/time worker in an institution that has EÜB in Turkey and s/he should be working at that institution. The staff who has a contract with higher education institution can benefit from the activities, there is no need to be a permanent staff.  Since there isn’t a contract between higher education institution and the staff who is employed by service procurement, this staff cannot benefit from the staff mobility.
