State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI)

Pursuant to Article 16b/c of the Research and Innovation Promotion Act (RIPA) the SAKK has been tasked by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) to conduct clinical cancer studies for adults in Switzerland. The SERI supports the SAKK in this with a core contribution to its funding. A service-level agreement defines in detail the strategic performance areas in which the SAKK is engaged. The current service-level agreement is valid for the period 2013-2016.

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