l. How successful are applications by researchers from universities of applied sciences and universities of teacher education in the evaluation conducted by the SNSF?

The success rates vary depending on the research area and the funding scheme. In the humanities and social sciences, up to 40% of UAS and UTE applications obtain funding. In the career funding scheme Ambizione, the success rate climbed above 40% in 2017; in Sinergia, the success rate was over 20%.

These figures suggest that the UASs and UTEs achieve success rates comparable to universities and ETHs. However, their success rates are considerably lower in other schemes. The adapted SNSF evaluation procedure is expected to improve this situation.
