Accommodation and daily allowance

Within a bilateral research project between the GUC and German partner institutions you can carry out research stays. Both short stays and research stays of up to two months can be funded. The stay should last at least 2-3 days plus arrival and departure (i.e. 4-5 days in total).

You can extend your stay at your own expense. In this case subsistence costs and per diems can only be claimed for the period of the research stay. Travel expenses will also be reimbursed for an earlier or later arrival or departure.

Daily rates

Research trips within the framework of bilateral research projects between GUC and German partner institutions will be based on daily rates for reimbursement:

  • for stays in Germany: 24 for the first 14 days, thereafter 12 €.
  • for stays in Egypt: 34 € for the first 14 days, thereafter 17 €.

The following principles apply:

  • for the day of arrival and departure, only 50% of the valid rate is paid in each case.
  • for meals provided, the daily rate is reduced (by 20% for breakfast, by 40% for lunch and by another 40% for dinner).

In the run-up to the research stay, a discount of up to 80 % of the expected daily rate may be granted upon request.

Hotel, guest room or private accommodation

Subsistence costs within the framework of bilateral research projects between the GUC and German partner institutions are reimbursed up to:

  • Hotel costs per day: 60 € (64,80 € with breakfast); in cities with more than 100.000 inhabitants 80 € (84,80 € with breakfast)
  • If private accommodation is used: accommodation allowance of €20 per day (lump sum)
  • Maximum accommodation costs per month: 700 €
