Committee of Experts

The Committee of Experts is made up of 13 specialists from different disciplines. It assesses applications for support and the Arts Council’s own projects involving costs of more than 50’000 francs, as well as multi-year support agreements. It also advises the Secretariat on specialist matters.

Pro Helvetia’s Board of Trustees elects the members of the Committee of Experts for a term of four years. They may be re-elected once.
