The Croatian Science Foundation finances scientific-research projects that are being implemented in scientific institutions in Croatia and it monitors their progress and whether they are meeting their commitments arising from the work and financial plans and other contractual commitments.

In order to determine that contractual commitments are being met and that committed funds are being spent in an appropriate manner as well as to assist institutions and principal investigators with following the Foundation’s rules, the Board may adopt a decision on conducting an official visit to the institutions of the Foundation-funded principal investigators or their partner institutions. The purpose of the official visit is to gain an insight into the implementation of the project that cannot be ascertained from the periodic or final reports or other project documents.
