Foundation: 1946

Mission: Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) is the Dutch national research institute for mathematics and computer science. Our mission is to conduct pioneering research in mathematics and computer science, generating new knowledge in these fields and conveying it to society at large, and to industry in particular.

Vision: In today’s digital world, mathematics and computer science underpin the foundations of every aspect of society, from the economy to medicine. CWI conducts long-term research in these vital fields, inspired by real-life needs in energy, climate change, healthcare, security and other practical areas. Because ideas are only effective when they are shared, knowledge transfer plays an important role in our work. We have an excellent international network and collaborate with both public and private partners. We nurture young research talent and foster spin-off companies. We also make our innovative software tools available to researchers, companies and the general public.

Ranks by Subject area

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal
