Evaluation of the Swiss Space Center for the SERI


*Strategos S.A. - on behalf of the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation SERI – has evaluated the Swiss Space Center SSC in 2018/2019 in terms of tasks and target achievement, complementarity with other national actors in the space sector, and governance aspects. This evaluation was completed this autumn. It is important to me to inform you directly about the results. As one of the main outcomes, the evaluators attest the SSC a generally good target achievement in its area of responsibility. Furthermore, they recommend that the organizational connection, governance aspects and task portfolio of the SSC should be critically reconsidered in view of the evolving needs of the Swiss space actors. The SERI and the Swiss Space Office SSO adopt these recommendations and takes short-term and medium-term measures." Published by the Swiss Space Office of the SERI in December 2019. In 2020, the SERI withdrew from the Swiss Space Center, whose Board of Directors is now composed of representatives from EPFL and ETH Zurich. Finally, in 2021, the Swiss Space Center was renamed Space Innovation.
