About the Netherlands Educational Research Association

The Netherlands Educational Research Association (VOR) is the professional society for researchers of education in The Netherlands. The association was founded in 1975 and has approximately 850 members. The VOR works in collaboration with the Flemish Forum for Educational Research (VFO).
