How are the output data subsequently used?

​The SNSF makes the output data public via the research database P3 and performs quantitative analyses on them at a later stage. Individual project data will be used together with the scientific reports as a basis for evaluating follow-up projects. The first consolidated results for the output data will become available in two to three years' time when sufficient data has been collected. The SNSF is aware that it is difficult to identify and quantify the output it has financed and it will therefore take all necessary care when using the data.
