Welcome to the Dutch Network on the Mathematics of Operations Research (LNMB)

The LNMB is a Dutch Network on the Mathematics of Operations Research (in Dutch: Landelijk Netwerk Mathematische Besliskunde; LNMB is the Dutch acronym). This network is an interuniversity co-operation in which all Dutch universities and the Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) in Amsterdam participate. The LNMB has been established in 1987; from 1987 until 2001 the University of Groningen was its administrator, from 2002 until 2006 the University of Maastricht, and from January 2007 the University of Twente acts as administrator of the LNMB. Prof.dr. J.L. Hurink is the Director.

The tasks of the LNMB are twofold. Firstly, the LNMB offers courses for PhD and Master students. The PhD programme, which is centered around 18 courses, taught in a two-years cycle, aims at broadening and deepening the knowledge of the PhD students in the mathematics of Operations Research. Secondly, the LNMB is an organization of full and associate professors in the field of Operations Research. Each university and the CWI is represented in the General Board out of whom a Managing Board is chosen.
