The fourth is to innovate the way of financial scientific research funding support. According to the focus and scope of national affirmation, leading scientists independently affirm research topics, scientific research teams and funding applications.

Except for special rules, the scientific and technological achievements and academic property rights generated by financial support are obtained by the new R&D institutions in accordance with the law, independently decided to transform and promote application.

Relevant manpower costs can be dealt with through channels such as project funding. The sixth is to improve the supervision of scientific research funding. Strengthen supervision during and after the event, and conduct audit and monitoring in accordance with laws and regulations.
