NRP 75 "Big Data" looked at the information technology issues and societal implications deriving from the capacity for analysing large amounts of data.

​​The Steering Committee is responsible for running the programme - from selecting projects to producing a synthesis of the programme.

The programme manager and the president of the Steering Committee are responsible for the operational management. The head of knowledge transfer circulates information and results between the researchers and the stakeholders. The representative of the federal office works 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 acts as a link between the Research Council and the Steering Committee.
