  CWI - The Dutch government has allocated €48 million to three major ICT projects in which CWI participates. The funding is part of the 800 million euros subsidy programme Bsik to stimulate the Dutch knowledge economy. CWI acts as coordinator for the 'BRICKS' project, in which several Dutch research organisations participate. The project reinforces Dutch computer science research in fields like parallel and distributed computing, simulation, intelligent systems, algorithms and formal methods. The BRICKS research themes offer both fundamental challenges and solutions to practical problems. 'MultimediaN' deals with the storing, handling and access of multimedia data. CWI researchers bring in their expertise of databases, computer vision and multimedia presentations to the project. Goal of 'Virtual Laboratory e-Science', the third project selected for funding, is to establish a Dutch e-Science environment using high performance networking and grid computing. CWI participates in the areas of visualisation and user interfaces.
