Quantum Software Consortium


QuSoft celebrates five years of cutting edge research on quantum algorithm and software development.


Since 2015, QuSoft has grown into a leading research institute where over 60 scientists of the Dutch national research institute for mathematics and computer science (CWI) and Faculty of Science from the University of Amsterdam (FNWI) work together on fundamental and multidisciplinary quantum research. After five years, director of CWI, Jos Baeten and Peter van Tienderen, dean FNWI, signed the agreement that continues this collaboration. 

“I am very glad that nine years ago, when I started as director of CWI, Harry Buhrman convinced me to invest in his idea of a new research institute for quantum software”, says Baeten. “Together with the University of Amsterdam, CWI has made major investments in making QuSoft successful”.
