Erasmus + Global Mobility

Erasmus + International Credit Mobility with Partner Countries, also known as ‘Erasmus + Global Mobility’ refers to the mobility of students & staff between European higher educational institutions and non-European (bilateral) partners.


Staff and doctoral student exchanges

The Intelligent Cybernetic Systems Research Group (IKS) at the Technical University of Košice (TUKE) in Slovakia has Erasmus + Global Mobility funding to support the exchanges of PhD students and staff with the University of Auckland's Laboratory for Industry 4.0 Smart Manufacturing Systems (LISMS).

The aim is to exchange research, teaching and training experiences on common research topics between IKS and LISMS, including Industry 4.0, smart manufacturing, Cyber Physical Systems, Artificial Intelligence in manufacturing, and more.


Available positions

Three outgoing positions for students and staff at the University of Auckland are available:

  • 2 staff (teaching/training) positions for 12 day exchanges
  • 1 PhD candidate position for a 90 day exchange

The travel and accommodation expenses of these exchanges will be covered by the mobility study grants funded by the European Union.
