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.
The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) has awarded Veni grants to CWI researchers Jop Briët (quantum and classical data protection), Jiyin He (behaviour-aware search evaluation), Wouter Koolen (learning pace of computer systems), Marc Stevens (security layer against forged digital signatures) and Xiaodong Zhuge (3D imaging for nanoscience).
