The best scientists from Dutch universities give free lectures - University of the Netherlands

In 15-minute lectures you will learn something new and get the answer to thought-provoking questions. Always in an entertaining, easy-to-understand and enthusiastic way. The answer is given by an expert in the field: a scientist or professor working at a university.

What where how?
In 2013, founders Alexander Klöpping and Marten Blankesteijn thought of the following: there are so many interesting lectures given at Dutch universities. Why is this knowledge only available to a handful of students? Why can't the whole country enjoy it? No sooner said than done, and the University of the Netherlands Foundation was born.

We are now have more than 800 lectures and have 40 million views. And counting. We are a completely independent editorial board consisting of young enthusiasts with a common mission: science is awesome and everyone should know it. Together with the fourteen universities in the Netherlands, we ensure that reliable scientific knowledge reaches you.
