Stochastics is important both as an
enabling technology and as a scientific discipline.
Over the years, the Dutch stochastics community has built up a broad spectrum of active working
relations with researchers from physics, biology, medicine, economics
and industry. In addition, it has begun to coordinate its MSc and PhD
educational programs at the regional and national levels. It aims to
contribute to society, while engaging in stochastics as an important and
exciting field of scientific research.
The stochastics cluster, STAR,
pushes Dutch stochastics further to the international forefront and
allows the Dutch stochastics community to attract and train the most
talented students and young researchers worldwide. It gives a much
needed impulse to under-represented fields and strengthens the existing
leading position in well-represented fields. The cluster leads to
more critical mass in stochastics, and further stimulates the
interaction of researchers from probability theory, statistics and
stochastic operations research with researchers from other disciplines.
decided on December 10, 2009 to contribute 1,5 million euro to
stochastics. From this money mainly positions (postdocs, PhD students
and assistant professors) will be sponsored.
