QuTI consortium brings together Finnish industry and research for quantum technology development
(AzoQuantum) A new research project has been launched to accelerate the progress of Finnish quantum technology. The QuTI project, coordinated by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, will develop new components, manufacturing and testing solutions and algorithms for the needs of quantum technology. The QuTI consortium, partly financed by Business Finland, consists of 12 partners and has a total budget of around EUR 10 million.
The QuTI project covers the full value chain of quantum industry from materials and hardware to software and system-level solutions. The project involves 12 organizations: the research partners are VTT, Aalto University, Tampere University and CSC – IT Center for Science, and the industrial partners are Bluefors, Afore, Picosun, IQM Quantum Computers, Rockley Photonics, Quantastica, Saab, and Vexlum.
The quantum computing, communication and sensing devices to be developed in the QuTI project are largely based on expertise in microsystems, photonics, electronics and cryogenics. The project develops customized software and algorithms hand in hand with the hardware, strengthening the Finnish quantum computing infrastructure. In addition, new tools will be created for quantum technology product development that will serve the needs of the QuTI project as well as the entire field of quantum technology.
The three-year QuTI project will be implemented as a jointly funded project that is partly financed by Business Finland (EUR 5.6 million) the total budget being about EUR 10 million.
