Organisation and actors

The success of NRP 70 depends on a number of actors from research and the administration.

The Steering Committee is responsible for running the programme and for the entire process - from selecting projects to scientific quality assurance to the elaboration of the products at the end of the programme.

The programme manager and the president of the Steering Committee are responsible for the operational management. The team for knowledge and technology transfer (KTT) is responsible for the communication of the research results to target audiences. The representatives of the two federal offices (SFOE and SERI) work with the Steering Committee and communicate results to the administration.

The National Research Council of the SNSF is ultimately responsible for the NRP. The delegate of the Research Council acts as a link between the Research Council and the Steering Committee.
