Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) is the national research institute for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands. We conduct pioneering research in these fields and transfer our results to society. To give focus to our efforts, our research is clustered in five broad, societal-relevant themes: software, data, networks, computation and quantum. We address these themes through a trio of core activities: designing algorithms, mastering complexity and reducing uncertainty.

CWI scientific investigations can be applied in a wide range of application domains that are crucial for functioning of our society and innovations, from transportation and mobility systems to medical informatics, blockchain, and software applications for the next generation quantum computers.
