After completion of the project, the users are requested to provide a confirmation of access and a TNA activity report within 3 weeks after the access via Email. Additionally, a User group questionnaire and a feedback survey must be filled by the users to evaluate and improve the quality of access. These questionnaires should be completed within 2 weeks after the end of the TNA visit through the on-line reporting portal. Failure to provide these documents will result in no-reimbursement of the entire access costs.
Confirmation of access
A confirmation of access form should be downloaded from the TNA portal on https://ismirri21.mirri.org/project- platforms/tna/. Users and access providers should complete and sign this form for each access provider visited during the TNA. The document (in PDF format) should be delivered to the access officer via Email within 2 weeks after the end of the TNA visit. The confirmation of access is mandatory for the on-site and remote access.
TNA activity report
A form of the TNA activity report should be downloaded from the TNA portal on https://ismirri21.mirri.org/project- platforms/tna/. Users should describe in this document the objectives, methods, and preliminary results of the research project carried out during the TNA visit and deliver it to the access officer via Email. This report is mandatory only for the on-site access and the remote services.
One document for each access provider visited during the access should be filled and signed by the user within 3 weeks after the end of the TNA visit.
User group questionnaire and TNA Feedback survey
Each user from a project funded by an EU Research Infrastructure is requested to complete the “User Group Questionnaire”. The questionnaire enables the Commission to evaluate the Research Infrastructures Action, to monitor the individual grant agreements, and to improve the services provided to the scientific community.
Please complete the User group questionnaire within 2 weeks after the end of the TNA visit.
For the TNA feedback survey, the user will receive a link to answer a questionnaire within 2 weeks after the end of the TNA visit. Through this user feedback, the users will express their outcomes and experiences of their access at the visited infrastructures. These exchanges will give rise to improvements for the future TNA calls of the IS_MIRRI21 project.
