A description is given of the history of the development of palynology in The Netherlands. This development is traced from the appearance in 1977–1979 of the book Katechismus der Natuur by J. F. Martinet, through the increased interest, begun in the 1920's with the appearance of a thesis by Miss B. Polak on the investigation of peat bogs in the western Netherlands, to the culmination with the establishment of palynological divisions in several universities and other institutions in The Netherlands.
This article assesses the present situation of mechatronics in the Netherlands. After a short historical survey, it describes the postgraduate ¿mechatronic designer course¿, introduced in 1991. It deals with the principles of this course and how these principles have been implemented. Also, the activities of the Dutch government in cooperation with the industrial mechatronics community to enhance the awareness of mechatronics, especially directed toward small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is described
Looking back on the period since the adoption of EU Regulation 91/440, one can observe that the Dutch railway sector has been submitted to several changes in regulatory approach. This chapter provides an overview of these developments in the Netherlands from 1992 to 2008. It provides new information by including the findings of a recent official evaluation of the 2005 legal reform in the railway sector. The document containing the government’s position on this evaluation report that was sent to Dutch parliament in June 2009 (Ministerie van Verkeer en Waterstaat, 2009) is, together with its underlying reports, one of the main sources of information for this chapter. This chapter concludes with a few general remarks on the observed evolutions and the performances of the sector.
History of navigational canals in the Netherlands
Based on previous epidemiologic studies it is estimated that in the Netherlands the referral based prevalence of moderate to severe von Willebrand disease (VWD) is approximately 1 in 10,000 (1650 patients). This does not include patients with mild type 1 disease (VWF levels 30-50 U/dL), or individuals with borderline VWF levels with a mild bleeding phenotype, of which the prevalence is higher and may even reach 1:100 individuals. Despite the frequency of the disease only a limited number of studies have been performed on clinical presentation, determinants of bleeding phenotype and Quality of Life (QoL). Therefore we have initiated a nationwide study on moderate and severe VWD in the Netherlands, the Willebrand in the Netherlands study, the WiN study.

In this thesis the results of a large-scale study of preventive measures against toxoplasma infections in pregnant women are reported. Literature on Toxoplasma gondii, toxoplasma infections and toxoplasmosis is discussed in chapter 1. Special attention is directed toward the epidemiological aspects as they relate to the possibilities of preventing congenital toxoplasmosis. The historical background is presented as an introduction to the actual study. The initial aim of separate evaluation of primary and secondary prevention had to be abandoned due to various circumstances. As a result, the study was finally designed to evaluate the simultaneous application of both primary and secondary preventive measures in order to be able to establish guidelines and prerequisites for a future national preventive programme
abstractSince no effective therapy is available to prevent manifestations of congenital toxoplasmosis, prevention is the strategy par excellence to control congenital toxoplasmosis. The World Health Organization in Europe recommended that all countries consider the possibilities of a preventive programme; the programmes in France and Austria were cited as examples of successful disease controL At about the same time the Health Council in the Netherlands recommended a trial study. In the study described here both primary and secondary prevention were applied: repeated serological control of initially seronegative women allowed assessment of the incidence of primary infections during pregnancy when primary preventive measures were emphasized. In this chapter different strategies to prevent congenital toxoplasmosis in the Netherlands will...
Screening provides a means for 11filtering disease from the population11, until then unrecognized by patient or physician. In an increasing number of diseases, early detection is helpful in preventing serious consequences, by treatment or by genetic counseling on the recurrence risk of congenital disorders. New developments in the early detection of genetic metabolic diseases and other congenital disorders, which are a frequent cause of infant morbidity and mortality, have proceeded rapidly during the last decades (see Galjaard, 1980). Neonatal screening is one of these developments and contributes to the improvement of the prognosis of several diseases in early infancy. Screening for phenylketonuria is, at present, a common procedure in many countries. Other diseases such as maple syrup urine disease, homocystinuria, histidinemia, gal...
