The European Programmes Office will notify the host university / institution with respect to the selection results and will request confirmation concerning the beneficiary acceptance (which may take the form of a letter of acceptance).
The European Programmes Office will forward to the beneficiaries the contact details of the Host University / institution in order to jointly decide the mobility period and for the Teaching / Training Programme to be approved.
The European Programmes Office will invite the beneficiary to sign the financial contract under which he/she will receive the grant allocated for the STA/STT mobility gained after the selection. The beneficiary is required to pay the bank transfer fees of the grant. The grant can be transferred in a tranche of 100% or in two tranches, according to the financial contract provisions.
The beneficiary has the obligation to organize the mobility (transportation, accommodation, health insurance etc.).
During the mobility, each faculty or non-didactic staff will provide a replacement or a person to take over the didactic or administrative responsibilities. For faculties, teaching, seminar or laboratory activities which overlap the mobility period will be rescheduled.
When returning from the mobility, the beneficiary must submit to the European Programmes Office the following documents attesting the conducting of the mobility, the Certificate of participation issued at the end of the mobility by the host university / institution, the transport ticket and receipt / payment order (boarding pass, bus ticket, train, etc.), the final narrated report

If the mobility beneficiary did not observe the period specified in the contract, conducting a mobility with a shorter duration than that specified, will be obliged to wholly return the received grant. The extension of the mobility by the beneficiary does not oblige "Danubius" University to supplement the initially received grant specified in the financial contract.
