Projects are followed up at the mid point by a special review panel.
Prior to follow-up, the project leader is asked to submit supporting written documentation that serves as the basis for a half-hour oral discussion with the review panel. The review panel provides feedback both during the meeting and later in written form to the project leader.
Focus is on how the project has developed, possible changes and problems, preliminary results, and plans for communication of coming results.
After the follow-up, RJ’s CEO then decides if the project can be approved or if it requires a more detailed follow-up. A more detailed follow-up may ultimately result in the project funding being withdrawn or reduced in amount.
