The Royal Dutch Mathematical Society (Koninklijk Wiskundig Genootschap in Dutch, abbreviated as KWG) was founded in 1778.[1] Its goal is to promote the development of mathematics, both from a theoretical and applied point of view.

The society publisches the quarterly journal Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde, the magazine Pythagoras for highschool children as well as the scientific journal Indagationes Mathematicae.

Every year the society organizes a winter symposium for highschool teachers and bi-annually it organizes the Dutch Mathematical Congress. Once every three year, the society awards the prestigious Brouwer Medal to a distinguished mathematician. This medal is named after L. E. J. Brouwer.
