Payments, travel, and reimbursement of expenses

As a member of an adjudication committee, please note that:

Committee members are to book their own travel and accommodation, and then apply to get the expenses reimbursed. 

Normally, the committee chair will invite to dinner the night before the public defense, and the candidate will invite to dinner the same day as the public defense. We recommend that the committee take this into account when booking their travel and accommodation.


First/ business class flights are not covered if other tickets are available.


We recommend that you stay in a hotel in central Oslo.

The public defence is usually held at Pilestredet 32 or 46 close to Scandic Holberg ( which is located central in Oslo.

The department only covers single rooms for two nights in the hotels mentioned on this page, if you desire any other hotel please contact the administration. Any expenses for a companion will not be covered.
