Travelling for the STF

The STF budget includes an allocation to reimburse mission travel cost for the experts to represent the STF in meetings outside the normal working sessions.  

The travel budget is intended to present the STF activity and deliverables in ETSI meetings or with other organizations, to collect stakeholders' contribution, disseminate and promote the STF results, participate to events related to the STF activity.



The travel cost to attend the STF sessions is included in the contractual compensation and are not covered by the Travel budget.  If a STF session is co-located with a meeting, then the travel is part of the session and the cost cannot be claimed from the travel budget.  This rule applies independently of the location of the meeting and session in ETSI or another location. 

Mission travels under the STF budget must be authorized in advance by ETSI Secretariat (Read more)
