In this talk I will present a derivation of macroscopic model of interacting particles. The population of N particles evolve according to a diffusion process and interacts through a dynamical network. In turn, the evolution of the network is coupled to the particles' positions. In contrast with the mean-field regime, in which each particle interacts with every other particle, i.e. with O(N) particles, we consider the a priori more difficult case of a sparse network; that is, each particle interacts, on average, with O(1) particles. We also assume that the network's dynamics is much faster than the particles' dynamics. The derivation combines the stochastic averaging (over time-scale parameter) and the many particles ($N\to \infty$) limits.
