We will cover travel related expenses for NORBIS students attending our events. We kindly encourage all students who receive funding to take an active part in our school, and to attend our annual conference.
- NORBIS will cover accommodation expenses up to 1100 NOK per night for the duration of the course.
- If you can’t travel the same day as the course starts/ends, you have to clear the travel with NORBIS first.
- You are expected to book economy tickets as soon as attendance at an event is confirmed, and otherwise use public transportation to and from airports etc. We will not cover taxi bills or expenses to poster print.
- For travels within Norway, you are entitled to a daily subsistence allowance to cover food etc. This is currently at 780 NOK per day (more than 12 hours and overnight stay). From this, you subtract the meals that you have had covered during the course (subtract 20% for breakfasts, 30% for lunches and 50% for dinners). If you are traveling abroad, you may find an overview of the daily subsistence here.
Employees of University of Bergen may use PAGA, the way you usually do, only remember to choose ‘Override accounts’, to charge NORBIS rather than your own group, and fill in 121200 for ‘Kostnadssted’ and 809257 for ‘Prosjekt’.
Employees from other institutions must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and request to receive the travel reclaim form and send it within a month after your travel, along with scans of all original tickets and receipts, by email to email@example.com,
or with all original tickets and receipts by mail to:
