State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI)

Pursuant to Article 16b/c of the Research and Innovation Promotion Act (RIPA), we have been tasked by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) to conduct clinical cancer studies for adults in Switzerland. The SERI supports us with a core contribution to our funding. A performance agreement defines in detail the strategic performance areas in which we are engaged. 

The SERI, within the Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research (EAER), is the federal competence center for questions of education, research and innovation policy, with both a national and an international focus. The SERI spends approx. CHF 4 billion a year on promoting education, research, and innovation.

Performance Agreement

Switzerland’s federal government supports us with a core contribution. A performance agreement between the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) and SAKK defines the objectives we are to achieve with this federal funding.
