ICT with industry | January 20 to 24, 2020


During five days a group of about 50 researchers from IT and Computer Science from a wide range of universities (within the Netherlands and Europe) will work together extensively on challenging problems proposed by companies.

The ICT with Industry workshop brings together scientists, in particular (junior) research staff and PhD students, and professionals from industry and governments. The workshop revolves around a number of case studies, which are subject to an intense week of analysing, discussing, and modeling solutions.

ICT with Industry 2020 will be held from January 20 to 24 in the Lorentz Center in Leiden, in cooperation with NWO.

Workshop objectives

The main aim of the ICT with Industry workshop is to increase the collaboration between science and industry. The workshop strives for direct and rapid interaction between ICT researchers and industrial partners. It has the following objectives:

  • To stimulate synergies between ICT research and industrial R&D, by analysing challenging problems in multidisciplinary teams.
  • To obtain creative solutions for problems from practice.
  • To give insight into the possibilities ICT research offers, and thereby enable accelerated innovation.
  • To enrich the PhD students’ and postdocs’ experience in collaborating with industry
