Local Research Commission

Tasks and Responsibilities

The Local Research Commission is an organ of the Swiss National Science Foundation in the meaning of Article 24 ss of the Foundation’s statutes. Apart from the powers conferred on it by the Common Regulations, the Commission deals, in an advisory capacity, with questions relating to research submitted to it by the Senate or Rectorate. In particular it deals with requests in relation to contributions to the University’s “Research pool”.
