Administrative Offices

The Administrative Offices support and coordinate the activities of the Foundation Council, the Research Council and the Research Commissions.

​The key tasks of the Administrative Offices include obtaining and evaluating several thousand external reviews of grant applications in Switzerland and abroad. The Administrative Offices maintain contacts with the bodies responsible for research policy in Switzerland and abroad, represent the SNSF in the relevant committees and ensure that the concerns of the Foundation are effectively communicated to the general public.
