  • To support the translation of key documents about the Japanese invasion of the former Netherlands East Indies, in particular the Senshi Sosho series, and other documentation from Japanese, Dutch and Indonesian sources.
  • To initiate and support the conservation, digitization, and accessibility of 17th and 18th century Dutch archives in Indonesia, following their inclusion into the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.
  • To fund research and the publication and translation of books relevant to the fields mentioned above.

In addition, the foundation contributes towards the compilation of inventories, catalogues, indexes, secondary search aids relevant to the history of the Netherlands and Indonesia and the development of digital libraries, preservation imaging and digital public access tools. The foundation also maintains the so-called Corts House in Enkhuizen, The Netherlands.
