Research.gov Project Reports Webinar : This is the powerpoint presentation used in the Research.gov webinars to explain the reason and process for PI's to submit all annual, interim and final reports starting Feb 1, 2013.
Project Outcomes Report: NSF reporting rules requires the submission of a Project Outcomes Report for the General Public. This is a final report that is submitted in addition to your final project report for any awards made or existing awards that receive funding increments or supplements on or after January 4, 2010.
The Project Outcomes Report serves as a brief summary, prepared specifically for the public, of the nature and outcomes of your NSF-funded project. The report must be submitted within 90 days after the expiration date of any project.
You are required to prepare and submit your report using Research.gov. Log in as an NSF User with your NSF ID to get started. Delays in the submission of the Project Outcomes Report may result in funding and other delays in the administration of this and other awards. Be advised that failure to submit Project Outcomes Reports will impede your ability to receive new funding.
