General Assembly

The General Assembly comprises the delegates of the member organisations and is the highest authority of the SCNAT.

Normally the Executive Board convenes the General Assembly for a meeting once a year to elect the president of the SCNAT and the members of the Executive Board. The delegates decide on the Academy’s strategic orientation and priorities. They also assess the establishment and disbanding of SCNAT platforms. Likewise, the General Assembly determines the establishment of new ventures and the admission of new members.
