d. What will change in the evaluation process if I tick the category "use-inspired basic research"?

Use-inspired projects are more complex because they combine academic and practical aspects. The SNSF is currently implementing the recommendations made by an external evaluation team to assess use-inspired projects more adequately. As a result, it is attaching greater importance to the broader impact of projects that have been submitted as use-inspired basic research. At least one of the experts who writes a review should be from practice.
