Committees and juries


Committee of experts

The committee of experts is made up of 13 members with in-depth knowledge in their respective field. It assesses multi-year support agreements worth more than CHF 50,000 as well as applications for support above CHF 50,000 that are not appraised by a jury. The board of trustees appoints the committee’s members for a four-year term of office. Each member may be re-appointed once.
