The IMISCOE biography is online!

At the occasion of the tenth anniversary of IMISCOE, in April 2014, Aafke Brus (from Radboud University Nijmegen) wrote a study of the history, development and impact of IMISCOE. She studied the minutes of the Board of Directors meetings, interviewed key persons involved in the development of IMISCOE, and held a survey amongst directors of institutional members as well as amongst individual members. Her work entitled: 'Excellence, Diversity and Growth: A historical biography of the IMISCOE Research Network' sheds light not only on the history of the network, but also its structure, its research and publications.
