U-Map has been designed and implemented in a series of projects since 2004, four of which were co-funded by the European Commission through its various programmes.

All of these projects were led by Professor Frans van Vught with a core project team drawn from CHEPS and with the involvement of other institutional partners and individual experts (see A History of U-Map for more information). U-Map is now being run as a CHEPS project. The core project team consists of Frans van Vught and Jon File (project leaders), CHEPS staff members Frans Kaiser, Nadine Zeeman, Ben Jongbloed and Lars Rengersen (individual expert). Further information about CHEPS and CHEPS staff can be found on www.utwente.nl/mb/cheps.
