NE UTC Final Report Submission Procedure
UTC Principal Investigators are required to submit a Final Report for all research and education projects within two months after the project is completed. Each PI is responsible for the proper disposition of their Final Reports as stated below. Note that we have now made the process easier as the Center will handle emailing the URLs to the proper parties. PIs are required only to submit one report to the Center and mail out one on a CD.
Use the Final Report template below—which can be saved and edited—to create the report. Maximum length is two pages plus the cover.
Final reports must give a complete description of the problem, approach, methodology, findings, conclusions, recommendations developed as a result of the project and shall completely document all data gathered, analyses performed, and results achieved.
Please note: it should cite (and link to) any outputs which are the direct, tangible products of your project such as publications, presentations, conference papers or proceedings, websites, databases, software, courses, workshops, or other resulting documentation.
Our 2-page format is comparable to a Summary Report with brief conclusions and findings. If there is an extensive report already prepared, reference it in the Final Report. For example, "A more extensive Final Report can be found at [insert link if it can be downloaded], or by contacting [insert contact info]." This should also be done for full Case Studies or any other reference document or article mentioned in the Final Report.
Each Principal Investigator must follow these steps:
1. Submit one PDF copy via email to:
New England UTC
You must confirm in this email that you have disseminated the Final Report in step 2 below.
2. Mail one copy on CD to:
1970 Campus Drive
