Mathematics and computer science research are the invisible driving forces behind innovation. CWI contributes by:
- cooperating with industrial partners
- starting spin-off companies
- developing innovative software tools
- contributing to international standards
The institute also plays a central role in several (inter)national programs and organizations.
Four women have been given a position in the first round of the NWO Women In Science Excel (WISE) programme, amongst them Stacey Jeffery from the Algorithms and Complexity group at CWI. The others are Elisabeth Adams (ASTRON), Barbora Hola (NSCR) and Anja Spang (NIOZ). The tenure track programme provides these talented female scientists with the opportunity to continue or develop their own research group and ultimately advance to a top position at their institutes.
