A final report is different from the regular annual reports in that the results of the Research must be included. If you have not done so yet, you need to submit a head and shoulders photo of the Primary Researcher on the project as well as a few relevant photographs of the research which can be used in publications.
Any relevant publications, scientific articles, presentations, posters, theses or similar which were produced due to this research should be listed in the Final Report.
It is a requirement that the results of the research be summarised and described in a popular article. The article will be used by the RMRDSA for publication through the red meat industry magazines or in popular media. Typically the Red Meat Magazine is used for this purpose.
A comprehensive report should be produced by the researcher and his team. This report will not be published on the RMRDSA website but should be submitted with the Final Report.
The balance of the funding due, i.e. the 20% of the approved funding for the final year of the project, will be released once all the relevant information has been received by the RMRDSA.
Publication on the RMRDSA website
The Executive Summary of the project along with key details including the objectives of the project will be published on the RMRDSA website. Here is a typical page of a project - Heterosis beef sensory and leather quality traits. A page like this will be loaded onto the web for each and every completed project.
The only exception will be where there is Intellectual Property on the project.
It is of key importance that results of Research must be made available and accessible to the industry.
