WP4 will closely follow funded projects from implementation to reporting. This will cover cruises and remote access across the three Access programmes. The follow-up is to ensure that the implementation follows the requirements framed in the Grant Agreement, and that the cruises are also operated under the conditions of the SLP. An evaluation will be conducted of the cruise report, which must be provided by each project Principal Investigator (PI) in Eurofleets+ cruises within 60 days of cruise completion. A formal survey will be conducted with each PI after each cruise, to evaluate the performance of research vessels and equipment, establishing if end- user requirements were met, and if the scientific cruise was successful overall.
