How to manage your projects

CSC Project needs to be extended yearly.

  • Project members receive reminders about the project expiration.
  • The Project Manager can extend the project in MyCSC
  • When granted new billing units (BU) project is extended automatically by a year.
  • Projects that use Fairdata IDA will be extended automatically.


Project Manager’s CSC account inactivation closes the project for all project members.

  • The Project Manager’s CSC account needs to be kept active by changing password yearly and keeping user information such as email address up to date. If needed, Project Manager is responsible for transferring Project Manager duties to another member of the Project.

Users are primarily responsible for moving data or deleting the project content themselves before the project is closed. If you're unsure about your CSC Project's or Account's status, please log in MyCSC to extend your project or change your account password. If you want to close your Project, change your account email address or change the Project Manager, kindly contact ServiceDesk
