We make our software output available to researchers and companies. Part of the institute’s software productions is aimed to be used by a wide audience and intended to become the reference software in its area. CWI has contributed to new industry standards in multimedia, internet security, database management systems and the development of programming languages.

Spin-off Companies

CWI has followed a dual mission since its foundation in 1946. Our pioneering mathematics and computer sciences research of the highest international calibre continues today, however, at the same time we aim to put our discoveries at the disposal of society. One of our most effective windows to the market is a growing panel of successful spin-off businesses.
