European Real Life Mobility program

What is the European Real Life Mobility program?

As part of the Climate-KIC Master program, you will be outside of your home university, preferably with a Climate-KIC partner abroad. During this time, you can do an internship, follow courses at another university or conduct your Master thesis research. The duration of the mobility should allow students to receive a minimum of 30 ECTS.
To support you financially, Climate-KIC has established the European Real Life Mobility program.
According the EIT-Climate-KIC Grant Agreement the mobility grants are as follow:

  • For mobility with duration of up to and including  26 weeks, travel and subsistence costs will be reimbursed on the basis of real costs to a maximum monthly limit. This limit is determined by the country where the mobility takes place and whether it is combined with in internship.  

You can have a look at the lump sum rates in the Mobility consent form (see mobility documents).


Mobility should be completed in one instance and not be split into several time periods (exception can be granted upon request and subject to the approval of the Education Manager).

Your project should be related to entrepreneurship and innovation and fit in with one of Climate-KIC’s four themes:

  • Urban Transitions
  • Sustainable Land Use
  • Sustainable Production Systems
  • Decision Metrics & Finance
