• Networks Match Making Event: "I left with a creativity boost"

    From 20 to 22 January 2020, the Gravitation Programme NETWORKS organised the Networks Match Making Event, jointly with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the Gravitation Programme SCOOP. The aim was to bring together researchers from social sciences, economic sciences, mathematics and computer science sharing an interest in complex networks, with the aim to discover valuable synergies. Over 45 participants from the academic partners, and from research intensive companies like CBS and RaboBank, came to Kaap Doorn to exchange ideas about available theories, techniques and methods, and to identify common challenges.
