Operational Management Handbook

The Operational Management Handbook provides practical guidance for all actors in the research programme. It includes information on programme organisation and functions, planning of research, reporting practices, and evaluation of project proposals as well as project progress and outcomes.

The Operational Management Handbook will be published by the end of 2022.

Administrative reporting and invoicing

The draft version of the Terms and conditions for VYR funded research projects (final version to be published when projects start) describes the principles especially what comes to funding and invoicing. There are two interim payments and a final instalment. Invoicing template is used for invoicing the payments.

Progress of the projects is reported for the Technical Advisory Groups (TAG) using the Project Progress Report. In addition, a summary of the project results will be prepared annually.

All necessary templates will be published in autumn 2022.

Commitments for the projects

Each project has a responsibility to participate in research programme activities such as TAG meetings, which are hosted and documented by the project managers on a rotating basis. Projects also participate in mid-term and final seminars and external evaluation of the research programme. Each project should include dissemination and publication of their results and follow the research programme guidelines for knowledge management.
