Missions of Researchers (PhD Students)

Each Department has a global allocation of funds to support researchers' missions during the calendar year. The sums available for individual researchers differ according to departmental rules. Researcher applying for funding must refer to their departmental rules or contact their Departmental Assistant.

In order to go on a mission, researcher has to fill in the Mission Order Request (MOR). The document must be completed, signed by the applicant, countersigned by their supervisor and handed in person to the Departmental Assistant.

All relevant documents required by the applicant's Department to justify the Mission Order Request (including registration fees) must be attached to the form before submitting it for approval by the Head of Department. 

Please note that as from May 2017 a policy to ensure the safety and security of staff members and researchers when on a mission has been approved. (EUI Policy on Risk Missions

For details see President's Decision No. 01/16 regarding researchers travelling on research missions and the reimbursement of travel subsistence expenses to researcher candidates invited for an interview.
