The NCCR is organised in research projects and in platforms. Platforms provide the structuring elements of the NCCR thereby providing synergy between the individual projects or providing coordination elements for joint activities. The Programme Office ensures the overall scientific coordination and provides the general administrative and technical support in collaboration with local offices.
