The success of NRP 74 depends on a number of actors from research and the administration.

​​​The programme manager and the president of the Steering Committee are responsible for the operational management. The head of knowledge transfer communicates research results to target audiences. The representative of the Federal Administration and the representative of the Swiss Conference of the Cantonal Ministers of Public Health work with the Steering Committee and communicate results to the administration.

The Programmes division of the National Research Council is ultimately responsible for the NRP. The delegate of the Research Council and his deputy act as a link between the Research Council and the Steering Committee.
