EMI Quarterly and Periodic Report Submission

The Quarterly Reports (QR) and Periodic Reports (PR) are official contractual obligations the project has to fulfill towards the European Commission (EC). The QRs and PRs include the project achievements, attainment of milestones and deliverables, issues and differences between work expected to be carried out in accordance with the DoW and work that was actually performed. There are three QRs to be submitted in a reporting period. The fourth quarter is covered by the PR together with a general assessment of the full 12-month reporting period. The final PR follows a standard template provided by the EC.

Quarterly Report submission and review procedure:

    • If there is significant deviation from (linear) cost or effort estimates, please provide an explanation and your plan in the coming quarters to address it
    • Exceptionally, WP leaders and project administrators' contributions to Q1, Q5 and Q9 (first quarters of each reporting period) must be provided on 15th of July to take into account the holiday season
