Who we are
The United Academics Foundation (UAF) is a not-for-profit organization. It was founded in January 2013 by Louis Lapidaire, Robert Paul Kuiper and Anouk Vleugels. The Foundation is based in Amsterdam, but our team is international, with a group of dedicated people working remotely on several continents.
The mission of the United Academics Foundation (UAF) is to connect science and society: creating a world where scientific research results are accessible for all, so that knowledge can be easily spread and built upon.
”How can something as important as knowledge be trapped into a billion dollar business? We believe it’s time for change”. Louis Lapidaire, Founder of United Academics
