A big thank-you goes to all our partners. They support the organization, the preparation and most of all the national tournament either financially or otherwise! Without them, all of this would not be possible.

All partners...

The SYPT and the SYNT are organized by the board of the non-profit association Pro IYPT-CH. The board members are responsible for all the administrative tasks, financing, the website and other media for publicity. Furthermore, they organize the SYPT, the team qualification and the preparation of the selected team. Some of them are even part of the Swiss delegation and accompany the team to the international tournament to coach them on site.

The board has the following members (March 21, 2023):
