Final evaluation of project's outcomes by FCT

The final report of CHOPIN project to FCT has been approved with the flattering comments below. We are all proud of our hard work during this exciting project!

"In spite of being extremely ambitious, we consider that the obtained results correspond to a full success in the pursuit of the proposed objectives.
The global and partial reports as well as the various published articles reveal that the proposed scientific and technical objectives were attained.
The fulfillment of the promised values for the scientific production indicators in a R&D project with a large development component reveal a great operational capability of the project research team.
Obviously that, in a project of this nature, it would be desirable to ensure formal guarantees of reliability and robustness to an extend that surpasses the one proposed. However, this extra effort would require significantly more means (time, person-power, and others) than the ones made available to the project."

"Os objectivos científicos previstos foram plenamente atingidos. Os resultados evidenciam grande qualidade científica, nomeadamente ao nível das publicações em revistas internacionais com referee. O projecto contribuiu para a formação de jovens investigadores e para a projecção internacional da equipa envolvida."
