Description of the transfer of knowledge

5.1 Quantitative Indicators of progress and success to be used to monitor the project

 

5.1.1    Research Activities

 

In reporting on progress with the implementation of its research plan the fellowship will provide information and data on the following:

 

         organisation of, or participation in, presentations to external specialist workshops and conferences (number, dates, places, title of event)

         individual and joint publications, directly related to the work undertaken within the contract (number, references)

         patents or patent applications directly related to the contract (number, references)

         development of new scientific and/or industrial collaborations (number, references)

 

5.1.2    Transfer of knowledge activities

           

When reporting on progress with the implementation of its ToK Plan the host fellowship organisation will provide information and data on the following:

 

         the rate of recruitment of experienced researchers and also where appropriate for each partner (ratio person-months filled/offered)

         the nature and justification for adjustments, if any, to the original overall number of person-months for experienced researchers

         the time and duration of each individual appointment.

         the number and level of involvement of senior researchers directly associated with the supervision of the recruited experienced researchers (at each partner)

         attendance at  fellowship meetings, workshops and conferences by the experienced researchers (number, names, place, date)

         organisation of training events (e.g. training workshops/seminars) at individual partner sites (number, attendees' names, place, date)

 

 

5.2       Qualitative Indicators of progress and success to be used to monitor the project

 

5.2.1    Research Activities 

 

In reporting on progress with the implementation of its research plan the host fellowship organisation will provide information and data on the following:

 

         general progress with research activities programmed

         highlights on more particularly innovative developments (novel concepts, approaches, methods and / or products)

         nature and justification for adjustments, if any, to the original research work plan and/or timetable

         scientific community recognition of the fellowship research contribution (awards, invitation to conferences)

 

5.2.2    Transfer of knowledge activities

 

In reporting on progress with the implementation of its training plan and ToK the fellowship will provide information and data on the following:

           

         nature and justification for adjustments, if any, to the original ToK plan and/or timetable (e.g. opportunities for new collaborations)

         level of satisfaction of the experienced researchers (e.g. as expressed in response to questionnaires)

5.2.3    Management

In reporting on progress with its management the participant(s) will provide information and data on the following:

 

         effectiveness of the "internal" communication and decision making between the co-ordinator and the experienced researchers, including feedback processes

         effectiveness of the recruitment strategy of the fellowship in terms of equal opportunities (including gender bala e) an
