Continuation Dutch mathematics clusters
Starting from September, the four Dutch mathematics clusters DIAMANT, NDNS, GQT and STAR will each be given 1 ME from NWO Exact Sciences, to be spent within a period of two years.
This decision is based, among other things, on the judgment of an international evaluation committee which judged the level of research within the clusters as excellent and in one case even 'exemplary'. The Mathematical Institute participates in three of the four clusters. The continuation of the clusters has been one of the ambitions from the 'Masterplan Toekomst Wiskunde', presented to NWO in December 2008.
