We have now entered the second grant period! One important update for this grant period is the introduction of a new daily allowance that will cover all accommodation, meals, and local travel expenses. The daily allowance ranges from €160-200 depending on the country where the meeting is taking place. This new daily allowance will replace the previous reimbursement policy and flat rates. Receipts for long distance travel (i.e. flights) are still required. In addition, training school trainees will no longer receive a fixed grant, but will receive the same daily allowance.
“The reimbursement of incurred accommodation, meals, and local travel expenses in the country where the meeting takes place is paid as one item known as daily allowance. The daily allowance considers the participant’s travel start and end dates and hours. The daily allowance rate is determined based on the country where the event takes place. The daily allowance rates can be found on the COST website.”
Please refer to the updated Vademecum for the complete reimbursement policy.
