Incoming Mobility 2021/2022 Fall Semester
Student nomination for course attendance during Fall Semester are now closed. UniTrento will welcome 40 new students (23 BAs, 13 MAs, 4 PhDs).
We remind our partners that the next deadline for 2021 Spring Semester nominations is October 15th, 2021, via our online nomination tool.
For the next fall semester 2021/2022 we plan to provide a mix of on-line and face-to-face course ensuring adequate social distancing and safety. Guidelines may be revised depending on the monitoring of the local situation.
As per next semester, mobilities can decide either to opt for a blended mobility, where they start their mobility online and plan a period in Trento afterwards (90 days as a minimum), or a physical one. In either case, funds are granted for the period spent physically at UniTrento only. Further information about ICM grantees feedback can be found at the testimonials page in the link box.
As of the month of August, the Italian Government updated its regulations about the mandatory self-isolation period for non-EU countries. Please fill in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs questionnaire for updated information about mobility to Italy and to check if you need to quarantine or visit the website.
Please find below a short summary providing examples with countries that participate in the ICM program (for more information, please see the official guidelines):
- For people travelling from Israel and Japan, they must provide proof that the person has either been fully vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 in the previous fourteen days, has recovered from Covid-19 and is no longer subject to required isolation or received a negative rapid antigen or molecular swab test result taken with the last 48 hours before entering Italy. Failure to do so, shall require a 5-day self-isolation period, followed by a swab test.
- For countries in List D (among which Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Ukraine), a 5-day isolation period is deemed mandatory upon arrival, provided that a molecular or antigenic test is taken with negative result in 72 hours before arrival. At the end of the self-isolation period, another molecular or antigenic test must follow.
- For the rest of the world, travel to and from these countries is allowed exclusively for work, study, health, or other absolutely essential reasons or to return to one’s home or place of residence. A 10-day self-isolation period is deemed mandatory upon arrival, provided that a negative (molecular or antigen) swab test is taken within the last 72 hours before entering Italy. At the end of the self-isolation period, another molecular or antigenic test must follow.
- For India and Bangladesh travel from and to these countries is not allowed yet.
NEW: As a contribution for the transfer from the airport to the place of self-isolation, a lump sum of €50 will be paid to your account together with the first instalment of the grant. This contribution fully covers the cost of transfer to almost all areas near the airport. The cost of the transfer to Trento from the closest airport, on the other hand, is more (about €200 from Verona and € 400 from Venice and Milan). We thus suggest you plan the quarantine period near the place of arrival.
UniTrento will also reimburse the cost of a swab test needed for the mobility, but you must provide the original receipt.
Please visit the Ministry of Health website for the latest news. Please keep in mind that as the disease monitoring may change, all the guidelines may be revised. For updates, please regularly check the UniTrento webpage for incoming international students.
All 17 of our 2021 Spring Semester are about to end their course attendance as the exam session is about to start. A farewell meeting will be held online on August 4th.
Starting from the Fall Semester 2020, staff mobility has been carried out either entirely in presence, entirely online or in a blended modality. The individual support will be paid only for those held in presence. When planning the physical mobility, please consider a mandatory 5/10-day self-isolation period upon arrival from some Countries (please read the above paragraoh on Covid-19 Emergency for a more detailed explanation). Please fill in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs questionnaire for updated information about mobility to Italy.
Please contact the International Relations Division for further information.
This past Spring Semester 2021, one professor from the National Aerospace University came to carry out teaching and training activities at the Department of Psychology and Cognitive Science at UniTrento (you can find pictures in the right-box). At the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science three professors from the University of Novi Sad already spend a training period while the mobility from a visiting professor form the University of Haifa is planned at the end of August.
UniTrento ICM Network
We kindly invite administrative and academic referent persons and staff to join our new LinkedIn group UNITRENTO ER+ ICM NETWORK to share opportunities and to stay up-to-day about current initiatives.
About the project
The New ERASMUS+ starts here. We are pleased to announce that the 2021-2027 Erasmus+ programme has begun. This new EU initiative places a strong focus on social inclusion, the green and digital transitions and promotes young people’s participation in democratic life.
The new Erasmus+ 2021-2027 call, which had been published, will be starting next year. Please note that the project name is no longer KA107 but KA171. An information meeting for the project will be held on April 16th, for more details visit the UniTrento website.
The mid-term evaluation report has been submitted last February. Notwithstanding the challenges to travel and international exchanges in the 2020/2021 academic year, UniTrento managed to carry out 61 mobility, about 30% of the overall budget.
Before the project deadline on July 31st, 2022, next Fall and Spring semesters will be the last opportunity to implement this ICM project. We hope for a fruitful collaboration between UniTrento and the other Partner universities for a full use of the budget. Please contact the International Relations Division in case additional information is needed for introductory seminars on the ER+ICM project.
As the project was supposed to end in July 2020, a 1-year extension has been submitted to the European Commission and the new deadline will be July 31st, 2021.
Currently 90% of the total budget has been spent, all student mobilities have been carried out. The remaining 8 administrative and academic staff mobility can be used before the July deadline, if the health emergency abroad allows it.
In comparison with the previous ones, the 2020 ICM Erasmus+ programme places a strong emphasis on social inclusion. With this aim in mind, a questionnaire has been sent to all of our partners in order to outline how the broad category identified by the EU Agency concretely applies to their country according to the local legislation and/or Institution rules and local customs.
