"Salvador de Madariaga" Programme: supporting placements for lecturers and researchers in centres abroad and, in some cases, in Spain
The Spanish Ministry of Education and Science has introduced this programme to promote training and mobility for staff working full-time or part-time in higher education or research and development (R+D). The programme aims to contribute to improving the academic training and skills of lecturers at Spanish public universities and their affiliate institutions and at the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Spanish public research centres (OPIS).
Those taking a placement abroad must develop a research project, and may combine this with higher education activities of the host country. Those taking a placement in Spain must lecture for any level of higher education in the host centre, and also develop a research project.
