Dear Franka,

You might have already heard something about the "Journalist in
Residence" program provided by the mathmatics department of Kyoto
University, Japan.

In the program, according to the program website, "journalists in a
broad sense stay at major math departments in Japan and talk to people
(professors, students, visitors, librarians), attend seminars and
conferences. Typically, they stay at one or two departments, for
one-two weeks for each. The program aims to enhance the relationships
between mathematicians and the general public."

For a brief English description of the program, refer to:

Last year, the program was awarded an incentive prize for good
research and practices in the field of "science and society" (the
Kakiuchi Prize), which is organized by the Japanese Society for
Science and Technology Studies.

Best regards,

Naoyuki MIKAMI, Ph.D
Hokkaido University

> Dear all,
> Could you help me with examples of best practices of mathematics outreach? In the coming months I will write te outreach plan for the research project Networks, http://www.thenetworkcenter.nl. 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.
