MU.COM. PROJECT Marco Merlini Second Transnational Workshop Sibiu, 9 March 2012
EVALUATION OF THE INTERIM REPORT We have submitted the project Interim report to EU In December 2011. It was one month later than scheduled, due to the necessity to implement an amendment to the project Convention with EU. As you know the CIDEM was substituted by the University itself.
EVALUATION OF THE INTERIM REPORT After having been requested to provide further financial documents, a few days ago we have been informed by EU that the evaluation was GOOG ( “GREEN” Evaluation).
NEXT STEPS Next steps to get the 2nd payment are: - Submitting an official request by the University (It was done) - Receiving the funds from EU (about 2 months) - Transferring funds from the University to the partners
RECOMMANDATIONS FROM EU EU found some weak points in our project. It recommended to us to: -Increase the dissemination activities -Being more adherent to the project schedule -Being more accurate in preparing the financial and administrative documents to be submitted to EU.
RECOMMANDATIONS FROM EU Special attention has to be paid to the following: - Provide always a translation into English of each kind of financial document (such as invoices, contracts, documents proving the payment of collaborators); - Indicate always the exchange rate when payments are done in other that EUROS; - Provide accurate declarations for the staff costs.
