The State Secretariat for Education and Research is part of the Federal Department of the Interior.
The Agency is led by State Secretary Charles Kleiber. Its main mission is to prepare Swiss Science and Research policies and to ensure their implementation.
The State secretariat is a member of the Swiss Network of Health Technology Assessment. The office doesn't run any HTA projects on its own, but it wants to stress its commitment to have this activity developed through appropriate measures in Swiss research policy.
