Association of Spanish Scientists in the Netherlands

Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Exact Sciences, Engineering…
Are you a Spanish scientist or researcher in the Netherlands or just someone with an interest in science?

Join us!


It is an association created by and for Spanish scientists living and working in the Netherlands, which seeks to consolidate a common space in which to share ideas, support each other during our stay in the country and encourage collaborations between institutions in the Netherlands and Spain.

Our objectives


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 media.


To create a contact point for cooperation between Dutch and Spanish institutions, both public and private, in order to facilitate scientific collaboration agreements between the two countries.


To increase the social perception of science and technology through events that give visibility to the work of Spanish researchers in the Netherlands.


We have different types of memberships depending on the profile of the applicant.

Thus,  not only Spanish scientists in the Netherlands can be members, but also people who reside or not in the country, as long they want to keep up to date with Science and our activities.
