Project follow-up and reporting

Projects receiving funding from the Research Council may request changes to the project framework via “My RCN Web”. Change requests are submitted by the project manager or project administrator on behalf of the Project Owner.

Progress and final reports are to be submitted to the Research Council electronically via the individual’s user area on My RCN Web. An e-mail containing information about reporting procedures will be sent to the relevant parties well in advance of the reporting deadline.

Project account reports may be submitted electronically via My RCN Web or as e-mail attachments (in pdf-format). Projects that are required to submit account reports will be sent more detailed information regarding how to submit these.

Project accounting reports

(for user-driven projects and other projects where this is stipulated)

The Research Council requires the submission of project account reports as part of the accounting control activity for all the funding it allocates.

The inclusion of personal data as part of the information in the project account report is authorised under the Section of the Regulations for Financial Management in the Government Administration, which stipulates that the Research Council must check the information in the project account report. The provision in the regulations gives the Research Council a legal basis for processing personal data, and thus we do not need the active consent of the individual involved.

The Research Council handles all personal data in keeping with the Privacy Statement and the Information Security Guidelines.

A new format for the project account report is being introduced and must be used for all reports to be submitted from the 20 January 2019 deadline and onwards. If your project is required to submit a project account report, you will be sent a message on “My RCN Web” specifying which forms and guidelines to use for your report.

The table below provides the forms that are to be used for project account reports with a submission deadline before 20 January 2019, listed by application type. Please use the form that is correct for your application type.
