Erasmus Professors – STA Mobility
Coronavirus measures at Unict
From the 1st of September 2021 incoming students, teaching and admin staff are required to show COVID-19 “Green Pass” to access public venues such as the University’s buildings, in accordance with the Italian Legislative Decree 111, issued on the 6th of August, 2021.
We hereby inform incoming students, teaching staff and admin staff that from August 6th, 2021, a Digital Green Certificate so-called “Green Pass” will be compulsory to access some other venues and to take part in social activities such as indoor restaurants, bars, museums, exhibition and sporting venues, cultural sites, events, swimming pools, cinemas, gyms, concerts, fairs, conferences, amusement parks and the like.
Certificates issued by the health authorities of the United States, United Kingdom including Great Britain, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Gibraltar, the Isle of Man, Channel Islands and the island of Cyprus, San Marino fall under the same rules of the European Union used to get the “Green Pass” so as to make the University a safe place for everyone along with the above-mentioned venues.
We strongly encourage all those who have not been vaccinated to do so in any of the vaccination hubs available in Catania.
The European Commission and the Italian government are looking to find a reasonable solution as far as those who do not possess the European Green Pass. Until then, they will not be allowed to access the University.
Students will be attending their first term classes online, based on the University of Catania policy to deliver first term lectures through a synchronous teaching ranging from face-to-face to online learning.
This action is addressed to incoming professors selected for didactic mobility under the Erasmus Plus Programme within interistitutional Erasmus Agreements signed between their institution and the hosting department in Catania. Joint mobilities in departments dealing with similar topics can be exceptionally performed if a specific authorization by the department that has signed the interistitutional agreement is included in the acceptance letter.
Such mobility will not be financed by the University of Catania and it can take place from October to July every academic year (in August and September there is no provision of didactic activities).
For verifying the elegibility, please verify Interinstitutional Agreements list a.a. 2020/2021
