Young Statisticians Netherlands is an organization for students, early-career researchers and professionals who are enthusiastic about statistics.
Our mission is to enrich the environment in which young statisticians in the Netherlands take the first steps of their career. We aim to provide a network through which young statisticians are able to get into contact with each other, discuss statistical topics and learn from each other. In addition to connecting young statisticians, we provide opportunities to learn from and discuss with leading experts, to develop professional skills and to bring together statisticians from the many different areas of science and industry in which statistics plays a vital role.
We realise our mission in two ways. First, we organize various events for our members: at our Science Cafe, we invite a leading researcher to give a lecture about his/her area of expertise, followed by a discussion with the audience. At our Cross Validated sessions, our members have the opportunity present their work and provide feedback to each other. We organize Workshops, where we invite a specialist to teach a small group about a statistics-related topic. To obtain insights into how statistics is used in industry, we organize Company Visits to leading companies in which statistics plays an essential role. Finally, we organize events where young statisticians can get in touch with each other in a less formal setting, such as the Statistical Pub Quiz. Second, we create an online network in which young statisticians can connect and share information about statistical topics and interesting lectures, courses, meetups or job opportunities.
