Services staff from 21 member institutions of the Compostela Group of Universities apply for the 2023 call of the mobility programme.

The 2023 call of the Stella for Staff programme of the Compostela Group of Universities (CGU) experiences an increase of 115 % compared to the applications received in the last edition. Specifically, this year the candidates submitted 71 candidatures through the electronic form compared to 33 in the previous edition.

The applications are from the staff of twenty-one CGU member universities, as no applications were received from the staff of the Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration (CONAHEC) institutions. These universities are located in eight countries, namely Brazil, Germany, Hungary, the Slovak Republic, Mexico, Peru, Poland and Spain.

In 2022, staff from thirteen GCU and CONAHEC member universities, based in seven countries, participated in this second phase of the mobility programme. According to these data, this call recorded a growth of 61% in terms of participating institutions and 14% in relation to geographical diversity.

The CGU Executive Secretariat carried out the candidatures review process during the month of March and gave applicants ten working days to submit the required corrections and optional improvements. Once this process has been completed, the dossier will be prepared for the selection committee, which will issue its resolution between April and May 2023.
