(CapacityMedia) The Netherlands is building a national headquarters for its quantum research, supported by the government, universities and industry. The House of Quantum will be in Delft, on the campus of the University of Technology (TU Delft), and building work has just started.
“With the House of Quantum we are taking the next important step in building the best ecosystem for quantum technology for Europe,” said Freeke Heijman, founder and director of ecosystems at Quantum Delta NL.
“It’s great to soon have a place where our programme comes together ‘physically’. This really will be our business card to the world.”
TU Delft said that the House of Quantum “will be the physical heart of this ecosystem. It will be an open meeting place around quantum technology where various functions will be integrated: space for scientists, start-ups and the business community, combined with rooms for meetings and interaction”.
The House of Quantum, which will occupy 12,000m2, will be built around an ecosystem of companies, investors and researchers to create quantum technologies and businesses. Target completion date is 2024.
The Delft unit will house various start-ups, corporate labs and shared tech facilities. The campus already houses part of the university’s Faculty of Applied Sciences and a new cleanroom is also in the making, so all quantum and nano activities will soon be clustered within walking distance of each other.

The aim is for scientists, entrepreneurs, students, financiers and companies to work together in what the Dutch are calling a barrierless ecosystem to accelerate technology development and its applications.
