This document describes the input of Nikhef, the National Institute for Subatomic Physics in the Netherlands, to the European Particle Physics Strategy Discussion 2012. The input is given in the form of eight statements summarizing the view of Nikhef on the future of the LHC programme, a linear e+e- collider, accelerator research and development, a long baseline neutrino oscillation facility, the organization of European contributions to large accelerator facilities outside Europe, the roadmap for astroparticle physics, detector R&D, and grid computing. It is the opinion of Nikhef that the highest priorities should be set on the exploitation of the full LHC programme, including a high luminosity upgrade after 2022, and on the rapid construction of a linear e+e- collider with a centre-of-mass energy around 250-350 GeV.
