Projects in progress
Your project has been funded because it addresses an important public health question. It is important that your research progresses as quickly and smoothly as possible. Our staff can help with this by providing appropriate support and advice.
We keep in touch with the research teams in a number of ways:
- project welcome meetings
- regular and ad hoc progress reports
- teleconferences and on-site visits
Progress reports are one of the most important ways we keep in touch with research teams so that we can provide support when it is needed.
Researchers are required to complete and submit progress reports online every six months. The report is read thoroughly and a response is given.
We have created a 'user friendly' online form that provides the information we need to enable us to:
- review progress against a project plan
- review the impact of any issues
- identify any need for additional support
To submit your latest project progress report, please use the button below. You will be asked to log-in before you can complete and submit your progress report.
Once your project has started we will allow the project details and protocol to be accessible on our website. To submit your approved study protocol, please use the button below to login to the NETSCC MIS. Once you have logged in:
- Click on the 'My Projects' tab to access a list of your current NETSCC projects.
- Click on the NETSCC ID number for the relevant project to take you to the project details page
- Select the action 'Update Protocol' and click the 'Request' button.
- Complete the resulting task pages to submit your study protocol.
Requesting a contract extension
Occasionally, a project team may need to request additional time and/or money in order to complete their project. A framework exists for managing requests for additional resources and for reaching equitable decisions. Please note that requests for an extension will only be considered once the information has been received.
If you wish to submit a request for a contract extension, please contact your NETSCC programme manager.
It is also important that you give us advance notice of all published work related to your project, throughout the course of the research. Find out more on our project outputs page.
Composition of a Study Steering Committee
It is expected that all Primary Research projects will have a steering committee and/or a management advisory group in place; details of which should be included at the full proposal stage. For evidence synthesis projects (literature review/ systematic review), scoping studies or other study design, it is proposed that if the project meets any one of the specific criteria then a committee should be formed. Please read the guidance below for full details of when a programme appointed SSC is required:
