In 2020, Quantum.Amsterdam has established itself as a new major innovation hub for the quantum software, technology and applications.
The main purpose of the hub is to boost the innovation and economic development of quantum technology by building a strong quantum ecosystem and organizing intense collaborations in key areas between leading knowledge partners, technology companies, and an industry network that has a strong interest in exploring and developing new business applications.
The initial focus areas of Quantum.Amsterdam are finance, quantum chemistry & materials, operations research, and security. For these areas, the hub will facilitate and support a range of collaborative research projects between our scientific partners and major international companies to increasingly become a source of new technology and know-how. Quantum.Amsterdam will provide access to powerful research facilities, infrastructure, and tooling. And it will act as a hotspot for talent, create high-potential startups, and train, educate, and inspire a growing quantum community.
Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) is the national research institute for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands and part of NWO-I, the Institutes Organisation of NWO. The institute pioneered research in cryptography since the early 1980’s and in quantum algorithms from the mid 1990’s. CWI strongly contributes to Q.A. in these fields through the Cryptology research group and through the Algorithms & Complexity research group (now part of QuSoft).
University of Amsterdam (UvA) hosts strong quantum physics and computer science research groups. Also, in addition to committed research groups, the university will invest in Quantum.Amsterdam and provide working space in which the scientists, engineers, and companies will work, meet, and cooperate.
Quantum Delta NL is a nationwide program which will be launched in 2021 to stimulate quantum innovation and economic development. Building on Dutch strengths in this field, it aims to enhance its position as the leading region in the EU for quantum technology. Quantum.Amsterdam is part of Quantum Delta NL, and in that capacity the hub will be tasked with developing quantum software and applications.
Quantum.Amsterdam turns early ideas into concrete projects with clear deliverables and with the right partners. We encourage you to engage in a dialogue with us to establish a partnership and start building an innovative roadmap for quantum software and applications. This is the starting point for preparing your company for future quantum technologies.
