Welcome to CENL

CENL (Spanish Scientists in the Netherlands) is an association created by and for Spanish scientists residing and working in the Netherlands, to consolidate a common space where to share ideas and support us in our stay in the country.

Our objectives are:

  • To establish a community of Spanish scientists from all scientific disciplines in order to share knowledge, build a support network and facilitate the integration of newcomers to the Netherlands.
  • To represent Spanish researchers in the Netherlands before Dutch and Spanish organisations, society and the media.
  • To create a point of contact for cooperation between Dutch and Spanish institutions, both public and private, to facilitate scientific collaboration agreements between the two countries and the transfer of knowledge from university to business and vice versa.
  • To increase the social perception of science and technology through events that give visibility to the work of Spanish researchers in the Netherlands.
