Nordplus: The Nordic and the Baltic Countries
Nordplus is a programme that allows you to explore exchange possibilities in Sweden's neighboring countries. There are opportunities to teach, tutor, develop teaching materials or design a project with a similar focus during your stay.
Teacher exchange within Nordplus
Support for teacher mobility requires an exchange stay covering at least one week (five working days) or a minimum of eight (8) teaching hours. The exchange can include teaching, tutoring, development of teaching materials etc. The grant is allocated according to set rates for travel and accommodation/board, decided upon within each Nordplus network, but the maximum scholarship is 355 Euro per week plus the stipulated travel rate.
You have to be employed at Karolinska Institutet in order to participate in Nordplus teaching mobility. The grant is not to be seen as full compensation for all costs, but rather as an addition to the costs incurred. It is assumed that you receive full salary from your employer during the exchange period.

What is Nordplus?
Nordplus is the Nordic Council of Minister's framework programme for cooperation between the Nordic and Baltic countries. Nordplus shall contribute to strengthening the community and identity by supporting mobility, exchange and networks between the five Nordic countries, the autonomous Greenland, Faroe Islands and Åland Islands, as well as the Baltic countries Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The programme is based on network cooperation between higher education institutions concerned with a specific project. At KI a number of our study programmes at the bachelor and master levels participate in networks within Nordplus, which annually apply for funding to organise activities within these networks.
