The Freudenthal Institute is the drive of innovation in many aspects of mathematics education. Crucial for that role is the fact that all aspects should be dealt with in an integrated way. Therefore the Institute also takes responsibility in certain aspects of in-service teacher training. One of the more innovative ideas in this area is the National Mathematics Days. Teachers meet mathematicians to exchange their experiences and get an idea about the state of the art of their profession. Several plenary speakers from the Netherlands and abroad and a variety of parallel sessions complete these days, let alone the happy hours. The program consists of several themes like: mathematics and technology mathematics and statistics mathematics and natural sciences mathematics and sports mathematics in a historical and cultural perspective pure mathematics The National Mathematics Days are organized by the Freudenthal Institute, together with some other institutions. Prof. Jan de Lange is the chairman of the program committee; Michiel Doorman and Martin van Reeuwijk chair the executive committee.
