This is not asking about how to apply for funding.

I just find that some NSF funding report (near the end of the funding cycle) is quite interesting read. In particular, it's almost like a research report of the PI's several years' work. It provides some insight how the PI's different papers are related, and it's for the most part very accessible for non-experts.

Are these reports open to public and where to find them?

Interesting question. While I hope it garners some answers here, I suspect that academia.stackexchange (or even a few web searches) will be more likely to answer this than this forum will. Gerhard "Let's Wait And See Anyway" Paseman, 2013.02.19 – Gerhard Paseman Feb 20 '13 at 4:48

@Teo. So you mean that they are not public data? – rptr Feb 20 '13 at 6:25
...but maybe a decent substitute for a survey without theorems and proofs. That said, I am almost sure that the european equivalent of NSF reports are not public. – Delio Mugnolo Feb 20 '13 at 7:16
