About VSNU


The VSNU – Association of universities in the Netherlands – is formed by the fourteen Dutch research Universities. VSNU represents the universities to the government,  parliament, and governmental and civic organisations. It does so by facilitating debate, developing and disseminating common positions, contributing towards improving the reputation of the university sector, and by making strategic choices to strengthen scientific education and research in the Netherlands.

Alongside that, the VSNU is an employers' organisation, which holds consultations with government and labour unions regarding employment conditions in the university sector.
