This project is focused on the mathematics behind for example communication and energy networks. Leiden University, the University of Amsterdam, Eindhoven University of Technology and the Center for Mathematics and Computer Science in the Netherlands are involved. Good examples of initiatives of mathematics communication and education are very much welcome! Recommendations and tips are well appreciated. Thank you in advance.
