2.1 After the implementation of classified review of general projects and key projects, the Youth Fund will be included in the pilot scope of classified review. The applicant shall, according to the scientific problems and research contents to be solved, select the attributes of a kind of scientific problems that are most in line with, focus on and best reflect the characteristics of the application project, and clarify the reasons.
2.2 The outstanding youth research fund project and the national outstanding youth science fund project continue to implement the policy of coordinating and connecting with other national science and technology plans for talents. The national science and technology talents plan at the same level can only apply for or undertake one item, and cannot apply at the opposite level. Moreover, the outstanding youth research fund project and the national outstanding youth science fund project use the "contract system", so there is no need to prepare a budget.
2.3 The application code should be completely adjusted, and the third-level code should be cancelled. The application code 1 and its corresponding "research direction" and "keywords" should be accurately selected, and the second-level application code (4 digits) should be selected as much as possible.
