AcademicTransfer was founded in 1997 as an initiative of:

  • The VSNU, the Association of Universities in the Netherlands
  • The NFU, the Netherlands Federation of University Medical Centres
  • The WVOI, the Employers' Association of Research Institutes

Initially, the goal was to increase the transparency of the academic job market – and to do this via a single shared website. The plan was successful: AcademicTransfer quickly expanded into the premier signboard for all academic and scientific vacancies in the Netherlands.

Since 2008, AcademicTransfer has been a cooperative association of Dutch knowledge institutions: the Dutch universities, university medical centres and research organisations NWO, KNAW and the KB.
