Many of QuTech’s collaborations with Academia take place in European alliances. Find here an overview of QuTech’s current direct collaborations with partners in the academic world.
- In the Quantum Software Consortium, QuSoft, the University of Amsterdam (Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica), Leiden University and QuTech are combining forces to “program the computer of the future”. It is funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science through the Dutch Research Council (NWO) as a Gravitation Project.
- QuMat – Materials for the Quantum Age – is another Dutch research program under the gravity initiative. It’s a collaboration between researchers in Delft, Utrecht, Groningen, Nijmegen, Eindhoven, and Twente, developing proto-type scalable, affordable computer materials that can host robust qubit states, while allowing coherent transport up to room temperature.
- End of 2022 and early 2023, scientists from QuTech and Eindhoven University of Technology first demonstrated the existence of an equal-spin electron pairing by using quantum dots defined in a specially grown semiconductor nanowire and created these particles, measuring their properties with great control.
QuTech is taking a proactive role in the discussions around Dutch and European policies and programs. Together with other Dutch stakeholders (Quantum Delta NL), QuTech identified what is needed to maintain and strengthen the pioneering role of the Netherlands in the field of quantum technology. Find the outcomes in the National Agenda Quantum Technology.
