In The Netherlands, a number of research schools was founded in the beginning of the 1990's. In a research school, a number of universities cooperate in a certain area. A research school offers educational training to Ph.D. students, and coordinates research in its area.
There are three research schools within computer science, ASCI (Advanced School for Computing and Imaging) focusing on computer systems, IPA (Institute for Programming research and Algorithmics) focusing on software and SIKS (School voor Informatie- en KennisSystemen) focusing on information and knowledge systems.
Besides these, there are a number of multidisciplinary schools containing computer scientists, among which OZSL focusing on logic and OTI focusing on telematics. Another research school addressing several areas relevant for computer science is EIDMA, the Euler Institute for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications.
Theoretical computer scientists can mainly but not exclusively be found in OZSL, IPA and SIKS.
