QuSoft is the Dutch research center for quantum software. Its mission is to develop new protocols, algorithms and applications that can be run on small and medium-sized prototypes of a quantum computer, with a main focus on the development of quantum software. QuSoft was launched by CWI, UvA and VU in December 2015 and builds on the institutions’ excellent track record in quantum computing and quantum information.


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.
