Maths good

The maths groups in Wageningen, Mathematics and Statistics, and Operational Research and Logistics, both received good reports from the external review committee that has just published its report on mathematics research in the Netherlands. Wageningen scored three tens and one six, thereby ending in joint first place. The committee praised the breadth of the Wageningen mathematicians, and especially their joint work with other subject areas. They received top marks for productivity, relevance and viability. Quality had to make do with ‘sufficient’. / KV
