Mobility and scientific exchange activities
If the courses or seminars take place in an establishment or university other than the University of Barcelona, the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, the University of Girona, the URV or the University of Vic-Central University of Catalonia, the doctoral students may apply for the travel grants of the university or the autonomous government that are available at that time. The mobility may also be framed within any teaching and research exchange agreements that are in place at the time (Erasmus, COST Actions, Marie Curie Actions, etc.).
