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.
