Launch of Netherlands Platform Complex Systems (NPCS)
The formal launch of the Netherlands Platform Complex Systems (NPCS) by the founding partners, Utrecht University (UU), the Netherlands Organisation of Scientific research (NWO), and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) took place on November 27th 2015. The purpose of the NPCS is to bring together all stakeholders from academia, industry and policy makers within the complex systems research, thereby generating national and international impact. It aims to organize, structure and facilitate researchers in complex systems, and to promote education and societal and industrial use of complex systems knowledge.
Rutger van Santen and Henk Nijmeijer are members of the board of Netherlands Platform Complex Systems (NPCS), and have also been strongly involved in the start of this Platform.
