Research Reports

All projects are required to submit regular progress reports and, at the conclusion of the project, submit a final report and an end of project financial statement.

Progress reporting

Research projects are assessed against agreed targets at least twice a year (February and August) through a progress report. We may request a progress report at any time during the course of a project.

All projects must submit their progress report online via our Clarity Investment Management System (CIMS).
