Each student and associated post-doc of the RTG has an annual travel budget of about 2,000 Euros. This money is reserved for conferences, schools and short (< 2 weeks) research visits. If you like to use this travel money, please send an informal email to Tilman Plehn and Stephanie Hansmann-Menzemer describing briefly the motivation for your trip and/or the program of the school or the conference and give an estimate of the travel costs (train, flight, hotel, fees, …). Don't forget to include the per-diem in your calculation.
Students who would like to attend a school are to apply for a 50%-co-funding at the HGSFP. Female students can and should ask as well for a 50%-co-funding from the HGSFP for conferences. The application forms for funding can be found here.
Travel authorization forms have to be handed in before your trip at the secretary's office of your institute. This is important to make sure you trip is coverd by an insurance. If you need an advance payment, please let the secretary know that you applied for funding through HGSFP and/or RTG. A settlement and all the invoices and confirmations are to be handed in at the secretary's office of your institute after your trip.
