The field of computer science evolves through synergy between foundational research and application-oriented research.
Linda van der Gaag
head of department Information and Computing Sciences, 2016

In the department of Information and Computing Sciences (ICS) we greatly value the direct link between our work and society. This connection allows us to obtain valuable developments, challenges, and enrichments in our – often fundamental – research. It is together with our partners that we can achieve social and economic impact.

Utrecht University has defined valorization as its third core task. The ICS-department closely collaborates with organizations in both the public and private sector to pursue opportunities in both research and education.
