Nowadays, many research institutes are largely dependent on third party funding. This situation leads to practical work or in other words project work which exceeds the research typical proof of concept implementation. As we were tired of seeing a downward trend in the number of accepted application oriented (full) papers in the major agent conference, we conducted a survey to provide evidence for the thesis that researchers can gain relevant benefits from project work for their research work. Hence, in this paper, we present the results of this survey and discuss different scientific questions researchers should ask themselves during project work.
