Please note that the mobility grant described below is awarded through specific announcements within the ÅAU mobility programme. When funds are available, the mobility grant application will be announced on the web page of the Åbo Akademi University Research Mobility Programme.
The mobility programme supports costs and travel expenses related to the visit according to the following:
- Mobility compensation up to 1050 e/month (1500 e/month for scholars traveling with dependent children), consisting of:
- 30% of the daily allowance valid at the given time for the host country, according to the Decision of the Tax Administration on tax-exempt allowances for travel expenses;
- other costs related to accommodation and travel, reimbursed against receipts, according to the Travel Regulations of Åbo Akademi University.
- One economy-class round-trip flight ticket (for the researcher only, not dependents), shall be booked via ÅAUs Travel agent Amex GBT.
The grant is based on 1050€ (1500 e/month for scholars traveling with dependent children) for a full month stay (28 days February or 30/31 days according to the month). If your journey is not a full month, we will calculate the grant based on the days you are away and if the month have 30 or 31 days. For example: if you travel for 2 full months and then 20 days in May, then we for May divide the sum 1050€ with 31 times the real amount of days you are away. That is then the grant you will receive for that month. If you are accepted to the program the total grant will be calculated based on the days in your application and sent to yourself and your faculty’s Travel secretary.
When making the travel arrangements, the Travel Regulations of Åbo Akademi University must be followed. In order to receive the mobility compensation and be reimbursed for travel costs, the researcher needs to make a travel plan in the electronic Travel Management Programme before the journey, and a travel claim after completing the journey.
The mobility programme does not support any other costs related to the mobility period.
