The NMC is organised under auspices of the Koninklijk Wiskundig Genootschap (Dutch Royal Mathematical Society, KWG), Platform Wiskunde Nederland (PWN) and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek NWO).
The Dutch Royal Mathematical Society, the Koninlijk Wiskundig Genootschap, founded in 1778 serves as the professional organization of all Dutch-speaking individuals whose activities are somehow related to mathematics. The Society organizes a variety of conferences and symposia focused at different groups of mathematicians. It also publishes the Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde, a quarterly for all of its members with a famous problem section, Pythagoras, a magazine for high school students, and Indagationes Mathematicae, a quarterly research journal.
Platform Wiskunde Nederland (PWN) is a Dutch platform to improve the position and visibility of mathematics in the Netherlands. It was founded by the KWG and the Nederlandse Vereniging van Wiskundeleraren (Dutch Association of Mathematics Teachers, NvvW). The platform aims to strengthen the financial, administrative, scientific and societal position of mathematics in the Netherlands, as well as the coherent and effective use of resources for mathematics research and mathematics education, both scientifically and socially.
The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research ensures quality and innovation in science and facilitates its impact on society. Its main task is to fund scientific research at public research institutions in the Netherlands, especially universities. NWO focuses on all scientific disciplines and fields of research. The funds are allocated by means of a national competition on the basis of quality and independent assessment and selection procedures. NWO plays several roles as a broad, national research organisation that actively contributes to various elements of national science and innovation policy.
