Impact of SEC

Through their consulting services, our retired experts provide hands-on, cost-effective support towards sustainable development of companies and institutions. Today, more than 700 technical experts, ranging from craftsmen to hotel managers to marketing specialists, provide their expertise and valuable professional experience.

Promotion of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME)

Since 1979, the SEC has carried out more than 2000 consulting assignments, with experts having provided roughly 800 000 hours of voluntary work. This is equal to an estimated 30 million Swiss francs.

The Senior Expert Corps is a project of Swisscontact. Since 1993, the project has been supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
