Comitato direttivo

The Executive Board is the strategic management body of the Swiss Academy of Sciences. Its tasks include the approval of the budget and the public representation of SCNAT. The Board members are also responsible for the authorization of mandates and service agreements with the platforms, including the controlling of the platforms. The Board has the authority to appoint its own working groups for special studies and is, therefore, authorised to instigate initial pilot studies independently of the platforms.

The Board has four to six members along with the President of SCNAT. The outgoing president and president elect are also members of the Board for a year.

Board members cannot hold the office of President or platform board member at the same time as being members of the Board.

The SCNAT Extended Board consists of the Board members elected by the delegates and the Presidents of the platforms.

The Extended Board usually meets twice yearly and its meetings are chaired by the President of SCNAT. The central tasks of the Extended Board consist in the consolidation of the strategic management of the SCNAT and platforms to produce a general management concept which, in turn, leads to annual and multi-annual plans. This also includes the approval of the corresponding budgets. The Extended Board is also responsible for SCNAT’s representation on international bodies.

L’interesse dei giovani per le scienze naturali diminuisce. Allo stesso tempo c’è nel mondo professionale sempre di più una mancanza di scienziati qualificati. La Commissione per la promozione di nuove generazioni (Commission pur l’encouragement de la relève) dell’Accademia svizzera di scienze naturali in (SCNAT) si impegna ad agire contro questo processo entusiasmando i giovani in modo mirato per il settore delle scienze naturali.
