Greece:Glossary

With a view to constantly upgrading the level of provided studies, the academic staff is entitled to sabbatical leaves for attendance at Universities or research centers receiving a full salary or even additional salary increments, as analysed below.

Organisational Aspects

In Higher Education a kind of continuing training has been established by means of sabbatical leaves for attendance at research centers and Universities.  Emphasis is given to the international presence of faculty members and this has to do with the ongoing decision for their development or election in conjunction with their overall teaching and their overall scientific and research activity.

Incentives for Participation in Continuing Professional Development (CDP) Activities

By virtue of Law 4009/2011, HEIs education staff, Universities and Technological Education Institutes (TEIs) professors are entitled to sabbatical leaves receiving full one year income for every 6 years of service or full 6 month income for every 3 years of service.  Sabbatical leaves are granted upon the Rector’s relevant act following the Dean’s recommendation and a relevant decision by the Dean’s Office or the respective TEI Faculty’s Director’s Office.

Professors may exercise their right to sabbatical leaves only within three years after completing three years of service at the institution. The right for sabbatical leave is not lost, but it is added to the sabbatical leave corresponding to the next six or three years, if it is not granted within the time provided.  Sabbatical leaves are not granted to professors who are to retire in less than three years.

Professors spending their sabbatical leave abroad cooperating, without receiving any payment, with foreign higher education institutions or other institutions, receive full payment incremented by 80%.

When the sabbatical leave is over, professors are obliged to serve at the institution for three years otherwise they are deprived of the income received during the sabbatical leave.

Upon recommendation of the Dean and decision of the Dean’s Office (Universities) or upon recommendation of the TEI Faculty Director and decision of the corresponding TEI Faculty Director’s office and upon relevant act issued by the Rector or the TEI President respectively, professors are entitled to unpaid leaves, following a control on their legality and purpose, provided that the Faculty’s smooth operation is not disrupted (Law 4186/2013).

The overall duration of unpaid leaves granted to a professor must not exceed three years.
