In the presence of Ministers Sylvie Retailleau and Robbert Dijkgraaf, Inria and CWI signed an agreement to extend their cooperation in the fields of Quantum Computing, Human interaction, Energy, Cryptography, Digital Health, Machine Learning and Software Engineering. New in this collaboration is the creation of European joint research teams. CWI and Inria, both founding members of ERCIM, have already collaborated successfully over the past decades and have come to know each other as reliable research partners. Both institutes have an excellent scientific reputation. By strengthening their cooperation through a partnership agreement, both parties join forces to support their research on a European scale and thus achieve important scientific results. This intensified collaboration will include a joint research and innovation agenda to strengthen networking, external partnership opportunities and funding. Scientific cooperation will be strengthened by creating joint projects as well as joint research teams.

The more intensive cooperation of both institutes to create a powerful alliance within Europe, as expressed by President Macron during the state visit, fits in with a joint ambition of both institutes to to join forces to cope with major scientific and societal challenges.
