ICT with industry

During five days a group of about 40 researchers from IT and Computer Science from a wide range of universities 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 2025 

ICT with Industry 2025 will be held from 20 to 24 January 2025 as a cooperation of the Lorentz Center in Leiden and NWO. It will be a physical event, taking place at the Lorentz Center.

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.
