Over the last months there has been a research evaluation of Dutch
Mathematics. The research conducted in the Department of Mathematics of
the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam has been evaluated as very good and is
considered excellent with respect to the relevance for society.

The evaluation committee was impressed by the efforts of the Department
of Mathematics to not only focus on high quality research but also on
its relevance for society. The committee remarked that the department
made a strong effort in outreach and working with other fields. Many
publications are joint with researchers from other disciplines. The
committee mentioned the work in system biology, forensic statistics,
neuroscience, operations research and business analytics as excellent
examples. Furthermore, the committee suggested to strengthen the
research collaboration with the colleagues from the UvA.
