Funding rates of Erasmus+ (STT)

Mobility travel is subsidised by unit cost. The unit costs are calculated after the distance of the entire journey (round trip). The calculation is done with the help of the Distance Calculators of the EU COM. The calculated distance corresponds to the straight line of the simple distance.

One-way distance according to the Distance Calculator Amount (unit cost) per participant
<100 km not counted 100 - 499 km
500 - 1,999 km 275 EUR
2,000 - 2,999 km 360 EUR
3,000 - 3,999 km 530 EUR
4,000 - 7,999 km 820 EUR
>; 8,000 km 1,100 EUR

Accommodation expenses are calculated on the basis of daily rates.
The person's mobility programme must indicate that activities related to the mobility action have taken place on the days to be supported. A certificate issued by the host university / company at the end of the stay, listing the beginning and the end of the stay, and when appropriate, the number of hours, is crucial. No daily allowance will be paid for travel days. The funding rates are nationally determined:

Country of destination Unit cost per day per participant until the 14th day of the activity Unit cost per day per participant from the 15th until the 60th day of the activity
Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom 180 EUR 126 EUR
