Donemus (compounded from Documentatiecentrum Nederlandse Muziek) is the Dutch institute dealing with the documentation of contemporary music composed in the Netherlands. Founded in 1947 it published thousands of scores and produced all instrumental parts.
After 2000 it merged with organizations like Centrum voor Nederlandse Muziek (CNM), RIM, Gaudeamus and the NPI.
After 65 years the government stopped the subsidy and starting from January 2013 a small Donemus continued on a commercial basis.

The Gaudeamus Muziekweek is THE international meeting place for young composers from all over the world. An important part of the Gaudeamus Muziekweek is the Gaudeamus Prize, an award to encourage composers younger than 30.
Since 2011 the Gaudeamus Muziekweek takes place in Utrecht, where it quickly grew into one of the most important initiators of new music activities. Throughout the season, Gaudeamus organizes new music concerts at RASA. Besides these activities, Gaudeamus strives to be a platform for new incentives and developments within the area of contemporary music in the Netherlands and abroad. Therefore Gaudeamus is an active partner in networks such as ECPNM, ISCM, IAMIC and the newly established Ulysses Network. Since January 2012 an annual satellite festival “Gaudeamus Muziekweek New York” is organized in co-operation with The Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, New York.
