Department of Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) has been partner since 2015.

The department’s research program is concerned with understanding the foundations, the mechanisms, and the technologies for developing and deploying advanced inter-connected  information-processing systems. In an international and highly competitive playing field, we aim to lead in understanding software systems that scale, that behave intelligently, that are dependable, and that can be either autonomous or have humans in the loop. Our research is focused on scientific depth, but also strives to address questions about the inherent social relevance, value and nature of the technology itself. Our mission and strategy are a response to these challenges.

One of the strongest aspects of our department is the internal collaboration among research groups, that fosters cooperation while also maintaining the strengths of the individual groups.
