Mission Rules for Researchers

Department of Economics

The Economics Department has an annual allocation of funds to support researcher missions each calendar year. This money may be requested for one or more missions, but it is not an entitlement and the limit may not be exceeded. The mission funds follow the calendar year (from January-December) and may not be carried over from one year to the following year.

For 2024 the maximum sum allocated for each researcher is set as follows:

1st-year researchers300 €
2nd-year researchers600 €
3rd and 4th year researchers1200 €
5th-year researchers*400 €
*For conference attendance only

Some extra money is available for researchers to visit their 1st supervisors who have left the Institute, and also for job market conferences with interviews for 4th and 5th-year researchers (this is on top of the yearly quota).

The Department's policy is to reimburse on the following basis:

  • 100% for job market conferences with interviews
  • Up to 100% to visit supervisors who have left
  • for conferences presenting a paper: 100% for high-quality and 75% for average quality ones
  • for attending conferences without presenting a paper or summer schools: 50% for high-quality and 25% for average quality ones

To apply for a mission
, submit the Mission Order Request through the Reimbursement Platform.  

You are requested to specify as precisely as possible the place(s) and duration of the proposed mission as well as its purpose, a hosting institution or/and a name of the event (if applicable).

  • Particular attention should be given to the explanation for a mission to the place of your origin.
  • All documents justifying the reimbursement (including the registration fees) must be uploaded to the form before it is submitted for approval.
  • In case the costs of the mission are to be reimbursed by other institution(s) (entirely or partly) it is crucial to clearly indicate it while completing the Mission Order Request form.

Remember to submit your request at least one week before departure, to be sure of approval by the department. Note that all charges incurred in transferring money to foreign accounts will be deducted from the mission allocation.
