Management update

The EC has informed Simon that the Year 3 payment will now be made to STFC. The total payment is €360376. This is less than the total amount claimed because we have reached the limit of 90% of total budget that will be paid by the EC before the final payment; individual partners will therefore also not receive more than 90% of their totals until the final payments are made.

Concerning the final reporting, the following WP contributions to the Perioidc Report for the fourth year are still missing:

  • WP11 Common vision (STFC)
  • WP13 Coordination of common standards (ICT)
  • WP16 Common tools, software repository and marketplace (APA)
  • WP22 Identifiers and citability (FRD)
  • WP35 Data policies and governance (CSC)
  • WP43 Training courses (DPC)
  • WP44 External communications and awareness raising (ONB)

Furthermore, the following WP highlights for the whole project (which will be included in the separate final report) are also missing:

  • WP13 (ICT)
  • WP21 (STFC)
  • WP22 (FRD)
  • WP32 (BL)
  • WP35 (CSC)
  • WP36 (UPAT)
  • WP44 (ONB)

The cost claims (Form Cs) for the fourth year should be entered as soon as possible when the online system is open (Simon will notify). The hard deadline for completing reporting to the EC is 60 days after the end of the project, but obviously Simon will need time to check the costs and include them in the final reports, so the real deadline is before this (say end of January).
