The SNIS is pleased to present its Annual Report 2012 with the central theme "Serving International Geneva and Switzerland". As stated by the Delegate for International Geneva in his guest editorial, the SNIS can be considered as a small but important actor in the canton's overall strategy to provide many international organisations with high-calibre academic expertise. The SNIS, with its mission confirmed and having successfully passed an operation audit, moved ahead by institutionally strengthening the ties with international organisations. Thus, the Governing Committee decided to enlarge its ranks by including the President of the International Geneva Committee, Bernard Kuiten (WTO), as a member of the governing board.
The Annual Report reflects the intensive year 2012 in terms of events, publications and funding activities. The SNIS successfully carried out its fifth call for the projects, dedicating almost 80% of its overall budget to the funding of research projects. Various statistics and graphs give a further insight into the geographical breakdown and partnerships of submitted projects during the first round.
