Computer Science


The Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (LIACS) works together closely with companies, governments, NGO‘s and knowledge institutes.

The Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (LAICS) cooperates intensively with national and international companies, authorities and knowledge institutes.

There are many possibilities to do research with LIACS, varying from small-scale research by masterstudents, to international and multidisciplinary projects that includes many of scientists. The optimal type of cooperation depends on your organisation, the urgence and the complexity of your research question.

  • The Applied Data Science Lab will provide you with the opportunity to learn and benefit from the latest insights in your field of expertise and explore further research collaboration.
  • You could have your research executed by recent graduates or current students by way of a master thesis/internship, closely supervised by our professors or postdocs.

On the one hand, collaborative research adds significant value to the development of the economy. It enhances the innovative potential, which in turn strengthens the (inter-)national competitive position. On the other hand, your business challenges inspire our researchers to rethink the way they do research and invite them to look for new opportunities beyond their existing landscape. That way we do not only support you in developing your competitive position, but also continuously refresh our research. Read more.
