Incoming Staff Mobility

Definition

The Universidad Catolica Andres Bello welcomes teaching and research staff members as well as professional expertises from all over the world, to attend seminars, conferences or short research  visits organized by UCAB academic departments. The Secretariat of International Relations connects those academic staff members to their peers located in any of UCAB campuses at national level. Also, the UCAB teaching and research staff may contact the Secretariat of International Relations in case they need support to approach other higher education institutions or research centers at international level.

Strategies

The invited academic staff members or expertises are received through these two mechanisms:

  1. Through a formal inter-institutional cooperation agreement previously established. It facilitates the required procedures and the distribution of costs related to the expenses of the incoming staff member.
  2. Through funds from international cooperation agencies that provide the needed economic resources to cover the travel expenses of the incoming professor.

The Secretariat of International Relations offers support to the incoming academic staff members regarding logistics, prior and during their stay in Venezuela, if requested by the academic department responsible for the event where the participation of the incoming professors will take place.

Benefits

Receiving academic staff members and expertises represents an opportunity for information exchange and academic actualization among teaching and research staff, and also, the diversification of bibliographic sources as well as general enrichment of all departments and processes involved in these activities.
