The NICC foundation was founded in mid-2017 and effectively started in early 2018.


The board of the NICC foundation currently 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 that provide context to the content of the collection material.


NICC currently employs two staff members through MetaMeta – a social enterprise focused on international sustainable development – on behalf of the DGIS (Directorate General for International Cooperation).

Committee of Recommendation

The NICC Foundation can look forward to the support of more and more supporters. This has led to the establishment of a Committee of Recommendation, the members of which have indicated that they are committed to the NICC foundation and, if necessary, to support the NICC foundation.

Members are: Marc Dierkx, Ton Dietz, Sjef Ernes, Loek Hermans, Ron Keller, Bram van Ojik, Henk Ovink, Sybe Schaap and Marja Spierenburg. The board strives for even more diversity in the composition of this committee. More information.

Volunteers and interns

NICC mainly works with volunteers from both the international cooperation angle 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 trajectory.

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