  • History


    The genesis of the SRIC Foundation was the establishment of a ‘centre of excellence in commodities’ at the University of Geneva in 2007 to provide knowledge and skills to young professionals in the area of commodity trading and serve as a forum for discussion between key actors. The main knowledge providers were initially professionals and local authorities in the field of commodities but this was progressively broadened to facilitate input from International Organizations and civil society.

  • Mission


    The Swiss Research Institute on Commodities aims at providing a solid basis for decision-making both in the public and in the private sector through the promotion of research in the area of commodity trading, trade finance and shipping. The SRIC also aims at disseminating knowledge and at providing a platform for discussion.
