Dictionary of Dutchness


Set up in 1952, Nuffic describes itself as the ‘Netherlands organisation for international cooperation in higher education’ and acts as an intermediary between the higher education sector in the Netherlands and in other countries. The organisation’s motto is ‘linking knowledge worldwide’. ‘What we love about knowledge is that you cannot give it away. You can only share it with others’ says Nuffic wisely on its website.
