This year marks an important anniversary for Nuffic: on 11 January 2012 it will be 60 years to the day that they were founded by the Dutch universities as the Netherlands organisation for international cooperation in higher education. Established at the government’s request, the new organisation was envisioned to make Dutch knowledge, skills and technology accessible to the rest of the world. Initially, that was done by inviting students from abroad, expanding later to take various forms, including institutional cooperation.
At the anniversary conference managers from the higher education sector, internationalisation officers and Nuffic’s foreign associates looked ahead to the international cooperation in higher education in the 21st century.
We want to congratulate NUFFIC with its achievements and the anniversary!
