The Stichting Academisch Erfgoed (SAE), in English the Dutch Foundation for Academic Heritage, is a network of Dutch universities that supports these universities' heritage and cultural collections.

Mission[edit]

The Dutch Foundation for Academic Heritage helps to protect university heritage, to make it more accessible and known to the public.

History[edit]

The SAE was founded in 1997, when Dutch State Secretary Aad Nuis reserved a subsidy of 12 million guilders via the Mondriaan Stichting. At that point, a plan was developed for future maintenance and management of the universities' collections. The SAE then made a first selection of valuable and save-worthy collections and objects, developed first guidelines to use these collections in education and research, and to make them better available for the broad public.[1]

The SAE has initiated various thematic projects, about botanical, medical and geological collections. In 2012, the SAE also launched a shared collection website for academic heritage.

Members[edit]
