Guideline for deliverables:
A project deliverable represents a verifiable output of the project, which is subject to review by the Commission. The formal approval of deliverables by the Commission services forms part of the Periodic review process.
- Deliverables should be submitted in electronic PDF format, to the coordinator via the relevant WP leader, with a deliverable cover sheet on the front, by the end of the month shown in the Description of Work (DoW, Annex I of the CA). Any delay in the submission of a deliverable must be reported.
- The text in blue in the deliverable cover sheet should be completed with the relevant information, and the dissemination level of the deliverable should be indicated.
- Deliverables that are of a nature other than written "reports", such as "prototypes", "demonstrators" or "others", should also be accompanied by a short report, including any available supporting material, so that the European Commission has a record of their existence.
- Deliverables do not need to be long reports. However, they should be made as useful as possible, and they should include all of the relevant information.
- Deliverables shall be of a suitable quality to enable direct submission to the Commission without any additional editing.
