Reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs

Instructions for booking

Normally, NRSN will cover the costs of travel and accommodation for all members who participate in our activities. Note that specific rules may apply for a given course or event.

Unless otherwise specified, participants are responsible for booking their own travel and accommodation, and NRSN will reimburse the costs after the event.

The travel reimbursement is limited to 2000 NOK for the roundtrip, including public transportation (not taxi or private car) to and from the airport. 

NRSN will reimburse accommodation costs for up to 1200 NOK per day. Please note that NRSN are not able to reimburse Airbnb bookings. 

Remember to keep all original receipts, as you will be required to submit these along with your reimbursement claim.

To be eligible for travel reimbursement, you have had to participate in a NRSN activity or have been granted a Travel and accommodation grant to take a PhD course in a Norwegian university.

Instructions for how to claim reimbursements

Please submit your travel reimbursement claim within 4 weeks after the event. Specific instructions apply to those who are employed at NTNU, and those who are employed elsewhere (see below).
