How is research monitored in NES?

Your directorate should have approved the project monitoring arrangements in place for your study.  All research projects should be registered on the NES Research Register and progress should be updated at least on a quarterly basis (NES Research Register).  Your directorate research representative has access to the register and you should liaise with him/her in a timely manner.  

If your project is likely to be more than one year in duration, then you will be expected to provide an interim report mid-way between the start and end of your study. Final research reports should be received within an appropriate timescale (usually 6 months) following completion of your study.
