    Stella programme: evolution

   The main objective was:

     - to provide opportunities for administrative
    staff mobility,
    - to offer cross cultural and work placement
    experiences,
    by means of 1 week work exchanges among
    University members within the CGU (in Europe).

Stella programme: evolution
   European universities participated in the
    programme during the period 2003-2008
    (6 years). The budget available for each
    call was 20.000 €.

   Yearly, universities offered about 70
    placements and sent more than 100
    applications for the selection process
    (done by the steering committee).

   Aprox. 40 administrative staff members
    benefited from the programme each
    edition within Europe (period of
    placements: March-October).

Stella programme: evolution
   In 2008, the Erasmus programme was
    opened to finance other types of
    mobilities, including the mobility of
    administrative staff and Stella was re-
    designed.

   After much discussion, Stella focused on
    the Intercontinental Staff Mobility, mainly
    with Peru and Mexico in 2009.

   American placements were open for the
    period: March-December. This mobility
    received a Stella grant for travel and
    meals. Accommodation was paid by the
    host university.

Stella programme: evolution
   European offers were shown in a
    permanent notice board on the CGU
    website but without CGU financing.

   Institutions had to address the target unit
    in Europe directly and use the Erasmus
    programme funding resources.

   Institutions willing to participate had to
    offer at least one department/service to
    be visited and accept the decision of the
    steering committee regarding the match
    of offers and applications.

Stella 2011
   Promote the participation of all the CGU
    American partners in the programme: 6
    universities in Mexico, 2 in Peru, 1 in Chile,
    and 2 in the USA (in order to offer more
    placements and increase the mobility
    possibilities).

   Find new financing resources for the
    programme as the intercontinental mobility is
    more expensive than the European mobility.

   Implement the online application form for
    future editions.Study the participation of
    researchers in charge of international projects
    in the programme.
