Piet van Wijk (1953) has extensive experience in the research and heritage sector and a great deal of knowledge regarding the forming and opening of collections. He was the director of the Film Research Foundation, one of the predecessors to the later-formed “Image and Sound”, where he was instrumental in forming the collection protocols. Over the more recent fifteen years, he has worked, among other roles, as Historical Coordinator at VPRO/NTR and has also held diverse positions at the University of Amsterdam, always at the cutting edge of education, culture, and science.
