(UChicagoNews) Leading research organizations in Europe and Australia have joined the Chicago Quantum Exchange as its first international members, creating global partnerships that are essential to new breakthroughs in quantum science and engineering.
QuTech, a partnership between the Delft University of Technology and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research, and the University of New South Wales in Australia are now part of one of the largest collaborative teams working on quantum science in the world. They join more than 100 scientists and engineers from academia, industry and government who make up the Chicago Quantum Exchange headquartered at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering. Adding these international leaders significantly increase the resources and available talent to make advances in quantum computing, communication and sensing.
“Assembling the world’s leading organizations will accelerate advances in quantum science and engineering, as well as help identify unique applications for this nascent technology,” said David Awschalom, director of the Chicago Quantum Exchange. “By partnering with QuTech and the University of New South Wales, we can collectively leverage the unique capabilities of each of our organizations to unlock the immense possibilities of the quantum world.”
