How is the implementation project carried out?
There is a project group, led by project leader Mike van de Steeg. The project steering committee oversees the whole project, with Jan Willem Polderman as chairman. We also have sounding board groups, one for students and also one for teachers. There are several important milestones in the implementation project, see our timeline for more details.
