Just got a vonfirmation letter from Loretta, our review will take place in Brussels on March 10.
Our three reviewers are:
It is a good idea to have a close look at who are these persons, what scientific interest they have, and try to “guess” how they might read our research, and of course evaluate our work. It is also good to, in a sense, prepare our report and presentation with this in mind.

Invitation to the First Review on 10th March 2017
Cher Prof. Melancon,
In accordance with Article II.4, II.5 and II.23 of the Grant Agreement, I hereby inform you of the Commission’s intention to hold the final project review meeting on 31st January 2017 in Rome at the DSI Fair premises.
The objective of my monitoring or review meeting will be to establish:
- the degree of fulfilment of the project work plan for the final period and the completion of all contractual deliverables;
- the scientific results and project results dissemination;
- the resources planned and utilised in relation to the achieved progress, in a manner consistent with the principles of economy, efficiency and effectiveness;
- the management procedures and methods of the project;
- the beneficiaries’ contributions and integration within the project;
- the expected potential impact (to social innovation) and the beneficiaries' plan for the use and dissemination of results;
In accordance with your contractual obligations (article II.4), please submit to the Reviewers named below all period reports and deliverables ten days prior to the review meeting date. Reporting obligations must be completed within 60 days following the end of the reporting period. For reporting templates and instructions see: ftp://ftp.cordis.europa.eu/pub/fp7/docs/project_reporting_en.pdf
At the review meeting, reviewers need to see an overview of the progress of work, project, including OPEN CARE achievements and attainment of milestones identified in the grant agreement. Reporting should include the differences between work expected to be carried out in accordance with Annex I and work actually carried out (table and explanation of the use of the resources per WP and per beneficiary). The EC needs to receive an electronic financial statement from each beneficiary together with a summary financial report consolidating the claimed Community contribution of all the beneficiaries in an aggregate form, based on the template Form Cs (Annex VI) accurately completed by each beneficiary. You can submit these reports and financial statements using the NEF tool found at the following link: https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/nef/frontoffice/.
As reviewers I have selected three out of the four independent experts below:
- Prof Frauke Behrendt, University of Sussex (UK)
- Prof Pietro Lio', Cambridge University (UK)
- Prof Andriana Prentza, University of the Aegean (GR)
Please note that you may raise objections with regard to one or several experts within one week of receipt of this letter. These objections must be based on grounds of commercial confidentiality. I remind you that all direct contacts with the experts concerning the project review appraisal before the meeting must be avoided. Please get in touch with me as your project officer in case you need to contact them. Make sure to give the reviewers access to all deliverables.
Please acknowledge receipt of this letter and inform your partners of its content. A list of individuals and organizations attending the review meeting to represent the project needs to be agreed two weeks prior to the review meeting. Also the reviewers need to have access to all the first year deliverables no later than one week prior to the review meeting.
Looking forward to the review meeting,
