NETWORKS proudly presents its first annual report. Read all about the NETWORKS activities in 2014: the programme’s first year.
NETWORKS’ first year has been used to set up the programme’s scientific and organizational structure, and to facilitate the interaction between the partners. Hiring staff was one of the key elements. On the basis of the project plan, 15 NETWORKS-funded PhD projects were defined, as well as 8 projects funded from the partners’ matching resources. The second major hiring effort concentrated on attracting promising young researchers to seven tenure-track positions.
Other themes in the first year were the development of an educational programme and setting up the organizational structure
NETWORKS started in the summer of 2014 as a 10-year programme funded by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science through the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), hosted by the University of Amsterdam (UvA), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), Leiden University (UL), and the Center for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) in Amsterdam.The programme covers a broad range of topics dealing with stochastic and algorithmic aspects of networks.
