High quality fundamental research with a keen eye for application.

Utrecht Research Institute for Information and Computing Sciences

In our modern society, the digital and physical worlds are tightly intertwined. They interact with each other even in the smallest aspects of our daily lives. This results in many conveniences, but it’s also a constant source of new – and often fundamental – challenges in the field of information and computing sciences.

In our constantly changing (digital) society, the Utrecht research Institute for Information and Computing Sciences researches both novel and feasible ways to push the frontiers in science and applications. This makes us scientifically and socially relevant.
