The NICC foundation was founded in the middle of 2017 and effectively started at the beginning of 2018.


For the time being, the board of the NICC foundation consists of four people:

The board meets at least every quarter and more often if necessary. For specific themes, the board wants to set up committees in order to provide the content of the collection material with a context.


Currently, NICC has two employees working for DGIS (Directorate General International Cooperation) via MetaMeta – a social enterprise focused on international sustainable development.

Volunteers and trainees

NICC works mainly with volunteers from both the international cooperation and the creative sector. At least once a year the board will organise a meeting with the volunteers to discuss the NICC policy. In addition, NICC will attract extra manpower in the form of trainees and, for example, people who are in a coaching process.

At the moment we are looking for manpower to classify subjects based on the current documentation. If you are interested in helping and being part of this initiative, please click here.
