The success of NRP 67 depended on many actors.

The Steering Committee was responsible for the implementation, from selecting projects to scientific quality control, to producing a summary at the end of the programme.

The programme coordinator and the president of the Steering Committee oversaw the operational management. The head of knowledge handled the communication of the research results to target audiences.

The National Research Council of the SNSF bore ultimate responsibility for the NRP. The delegate of the Research Council acted as a link between the Research Council and the Steering Committee.
