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.
Together with partners of the Vconect project, researchers at CWI demonstrated how group video communications can be used to enable a theatre play performed between two different locations, and experienced live by a remote audience over super-fast broadband.
