FNR Reporting is evolving in 2023!

A new reporting process, including templates and deadlines, will take effect for all FNR-funded projects starting from January 2023. For ongoing projects, the new templates will be required, but the existing deadlines should be respected.  

Over the past year, the FNR has been rethinking its project reporting process, with the goal of reducing the burden of reporting for all sides, allowing space for a broader range of research outputs to be recognised, and building trust with everyone in the research and science communication ecosystem.

This new reporting process was built through an inclusive process with the research institutions, with useful feedback on both our current processes as well as potential improvements received from researchers and administrative staff with reporting experience.

The new reporting will consist of three parts (depending on the funding scheme), shown in the figure above. In this way, the focus will be more on implementation in the early and middle phase of the project, shifting to a focus on outputs at the end of the project. A lay section will be included in the final report, to foster communication between research and the greater public.

In addition, the new reporting supports an ongoing reflection on the project by the responsible team, to support continuous learning for both the active project and all future projects. Finally, we will make a structured system of reporting deadlines, allowing more deadlines over the calendar year to further reduce the overall burden across the system. 

This new reporting process, including templates and deadlines, will take effect for all FNR-funded projects starting from January 2023. For ongoing projects, the new templates will be required, but the existing deadlines should be respected.  

Next steps: Webinar & new guidelines

Further information will be communicated by the end of the year and in early 2023. The new guidelines will be available on the FNR website at the end of 2022 and will replace the current reporting guidelines for all programmes. A webinar will be held on 1 February, 2023, from 10:30 – 12:00, in order to provide more information about the new reporting process and to provide space for any questions that you may have.
