Founded in 1946, CWI is the national research center for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands. More than 170 full professors have come from CWI, of whom 120 still are active. CWI's strength is the discovery and development of new ideas, and the transfer of knowledge to academia and to Dutch and European industry. This results in importance for our economy, from payment systems and cryptography to telecommunication and the stock market, from public transport and internet to water management and meteorology.
An international network
With its 55 permanent research staff, 40 postdocs and 65 PhD students, CWI lies at the heart of European research in mathematics and computer science. Researchers at CWI are able to fully concentrate their efforts on their scientific work, and to build an international network of peers. More than half of the permanent research staff maintains close contact with universities as part-time professors. The personal and institutional research networks strengthen CWI's positions and serve as a magnet for attracting talent. The CWI researchers come from more than 25 countries world-wide.
