Annual report 2021

We look back with pride on a year of personal and collective highlights. In April, we received the wonderful news that the full proposal of the Quantum Delta NL consortium was granted by the National Growth Fund. In October, Lieven Vandersypen received the Spinoza Award, the highest award in Dutch science. And in November, we launched the demonstrator platform Quantum Network Explorer, bringing the possibilities of quantum internet to everyone’s home. Throughout the year, we have witnessed strong growth of our local quantum ecosystem.

This report gives a brief overview of our organization, including research & engineering; collaboration & community building; education & outreach; and people & prizes.

Annual Report 2020

2020 has been a year of scientific and organizational highlights, but also a year of empty corridors and online meetings. It has required us to reinvent ourselves and it has been a challenging ride for everyone. We are particularly proud of the QuTech staff, who have been able to keep out institute working in such difficult times. Remote and on-site we have continued to pursue our mission: developing scalable prototypes of a quantum computer and an inherently safe quantum internet, based on the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics.
