NHMRC has released guidelines on the use of NHMRC funding for Direct Research Costs, including travel, conferences and publication costs (see Principles-based Direct Research Costs Guidelines).

It is a NHMRC requirement that in order to use NHMRC funding to pay for overseas travel, this travel must be formally approved and documented by the Faculty Research Committee prior to the travel being undertaken. In order to obtain such approval, all NHMRC grant recipients must complete and submit an NHMRC Overseas Travel form to at least 2 months prior to travel. We will then forward to the relevant faculty committee for approval.

- Applies to NHMRC Project Grants, Partnership Grants, Centres of Research Excellence, Targeted calls and all other Research Support Grants. (This approval process is not required for fellowships and scholarships.)
- Applies to all overseas travel.
- Travel must be directly related to the approved research objectives for the NHMRC grant. Conference travel must be for the purpose of presenting the outcomes of the research funded.
- Any overseas travel expenditure without approval will be removed from the NHMRC grant account.
