The Principal Investigator is obliged to guide the Project in a professional and responsible manner and manage the Project’s Financial Plan in a well-established, transparent and efficient manner.

The Croatian Science Foundation monitors and oversees project activities for all projects that it funds in a systematic manner, paying particular attention to how funds are spent and whether contractual obligations are being met. For projects whose duration is longer than one year, project periods are defined in the Grant Agreement as well as the report submission deadlines.

Periodic reports are submitted within 15 days upon completion of each reporting period, while the final report is submitted within 30 days after the project end date. Reports are written in the Croatian language.

All reports are submitted on defined forms, and after they have been evaluated by independent experts, the Board adopts decisions on further financing of the project.
