Travel and accommodation support

Guidelines for NDPIA co-funding of travel and accommodation costs for participation in activities announced at

Programme participants in Sweden will receive co-funding for travel and accommodation costs to participate in activities announced via NDPIA if this has been applied for before the activity takes place and if the activity is not held at the participant’s own university. The approved co-funding is to be requested after the activity has taken place by submitting the documents mentioned below.

All NDPIA participants should handle their travel/accommodation arrangements according to the normal routines at the respective department/university. Co-funding will be paid to the participants´ employer/university/project and not directly to the participant. Please note that co-funding for travel costs is not considered when travelling only within the Stockholm/Uppsala region.

Participants affiliated at international collaborators can join activities organized by NDPIA for free and will receive free accommodation to participate in the chosen activity. No co-funding for travel costs is considered in this case.

After applying for co-funding at relevant NDPIA event page, participants will receive confirmation of co-funding and requests for receiving the actual funding should be made after the activity has taken place by using one of the forms below (to be sent to

All costs should be reported without VAT. In any case, as stated above, the local regulations for business trips at your home university (or similar) should be followed.
