QuSoft is the Dutch research center for the development of software and technology for future quantum computers. It is a collaboration between CWI and the University of Amsterdam (UvA).

Research Semester Programme

In 2022, CWI launches a Research Semester Programme which aims to create an environment in which researchers from Dutch universities can exchange ideas on specific topics on a regular basis. CWI aims for the generation of new insights with the launch of this programme and hopes to inspire new collaborations.


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.
