Milestones

Cost of milestones were calculated by taking the effort allocated per consortium member for the particular quarter the milestone is in and allocating a proportion of that quarter's costs based on the amount of effort required in that quarter (shown in the table as quarter effort). The cost to milestone is then calculated by using the projects Gantt Chart and calculating the cumulative costs of all work required for that milestone. For the costs attributed to Work Package 9, these are ongoing throughout the project and have been allocated as such.
