Universities of the Netherlands present Student Cabinet

Not a coalition agreement for four years, but a plan for the long term, based on science. The universities of the Netherlands present - just after the elections and in the middle of the formation - an alternative coalition agreement. Fourteen students form the first Dutch Student Cabinet, each representing an own ministerial post with a suitable plan for the future of the Netherlands.

Netherlands very successful in Horizon 2020

In recent years, the Netherlands has performed excellently in the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020. Dutch universities and university clinics received a total of EUR 2.56 billion: half of the total subsidy of over EUR 5 billion allocated to our country.

Towards a Normal Academic Standard

‘We are barely keeping our heads above water. Invest 1.1 billion euros. This is essential to restoring the level of Dutch university education to a Normal Academic Standard.’
