Milestone Quantum Delta NL: Dutch players join forces in building the future of quantum technology

Quantum technology is an important key technology offering great opportunities for the Netherlands in the coming years. To accelerate the leading role of the Netherlands in quantum technology, a new institution was established: Quantum Delta Nederland (QDNL) Foundation. By expanding the current ecosystem of companies, knowledge institutes and governmental institutions QDNL will continue to build a strong ‘Quantum Delta’.

Quantum Delta NL was set up by a broad collaboration of knowledge institutes, companies and social organizations, including QuSoft (University of Amsterdam and CWI), TU Delft,, Leiden University, TU/e, University of Twente, TNO, TechLeap, Braventure, NanolabNL, MinacNed and NanoNextNL. In total, more than 70 companies and organizations are involved.

Part 9: Why we need error correction

For serious quantum computing, we need to dramatically reduce the likelihood of error of each elementary step – not just a little bit, but by a factor of millions. With several recent breakthrough, this is the right time to understand the importance of error correction.

Part 4: The applications of quantum networks

If we’re building computers that deal with qubits, superposition and entanglement, wouldn’t these computers also need some way to send qubits to each other? This is the dream of the quantum internet: a network that exchanges quantum-mechanical photons between devices all around the world, parallel to our well-known ‘classical’ internet.
