Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went? I have met the goal of the project, but not at 100%. I planned to recruit 25-30 new editors, but I only recruited 22 editors.


Please report on your original project targets. Please be sure to review and provide metrics required for Rapid Grants.

Number of targeted new editors: 25-30 Number of achieved editors: 22 The number of new editors has not been reached as planned. The funds came a bit late and the target students of our project had started the exams. However, we are satisfied with the reached number of editors and the results.
