Executive Board of SCNAT

Executive Board

The Executive Board is the strategic management body of SCNAT. Its tasks include the approval of the budget and the public representation of SCNAT. The Board members are also responsible for the authorization of mandates and service agreements with the platforms, including the controlling of the platforms.

Extended Board

The Extended Board consists of the board members elected by the delegates and the presidents of the platforms.

The central tasks of the Extended Board consist in the consolidation of the strategic management of the SCNAT and platforms to produce a general management concept which, in turn, leads to annual and multi-annual plans. This also includes the approval of the corresponding budgets. The Extended Board is also responsible for SCNAT’s representation on international bodies.
