### “Analyzing and Predicting Impact Created by Accidents on Road Networks”

On January 23-27, 2017, the Study Group Mathematics with the Industry (SWI 2017) took place in Amsterdam. Networks participated in the SWI 2017 event with a problem which combined the various scientific areas represented in Networks, and also with Networks people. Together with the Netherlands Organization for applied scientific research TNO, Networks proposed a problem on the analysis and prediction of the impact created by accidents on road networks.

The objective of the problem was to:

• Predict ‘reliably’ the effect an accident has to the expected time of arrival;
• Predict the extend and impact an accident has to the road network;
• Develop a data-driven model that can be used to analyze the delays caused by an accident and to predict the congestion on alternative routes.

A group of mathematicians worked around the clock throughout the SWI 2017 week formulating the groundwork towards the solution of the problem. More information on this solution will be posted on the site after April 1, 2017, when the SWI 2017 proceedings will become available.

### How to Plan for a Pandemic? An interview with Hans Heesterbeek•

Prof. dr. ir. Hans Heesterbeek, one of the leading infectious disease epidemiologists in the Netherlands, is a busy man. Fortunately for us, Hans Heesterbeek had a gap in his schedule to yet again answer some questions, this time not asked by professional journalists, but by us, four students from the Technical University in Eindhoven.

### MO-together and not alone! How networks can help fundraising in the no-profit sector•

Back in 2015, I joined the Movember health movement, a movement that you probably have heard of having something related to men growing a moustache. As a woman, you might imagine, I did not join for the moustache thing, but rather for the cause behind the moustache symbol, that is, raising awareness of prostate and testicular cancer.
