Catalyzing Industry-University Collaboration in Quantum Technologies

March 14, 2018 @ 11:00 am - March 15, 2018 @ 12:15 pm EDT

An NSF Sponsored UIDP Workshop

Come together to drive creation of powerful research consortia to compete for NSF center scale investment support.

The NSF has identified quantum technologies as a national priority through its Big Ideas initiative and has provided a workshop grant to the UIDP to convene a strategic set of corporate leaders (complemented by academic, government, and other representatives) to determine the need and interest in supporting industry-inspired, academically-engaged research centers through substantive investments from both the corporate and government sectors.

The goal of creating one or more industry university collaborative research centers would be to bolster the country’s standing in this broad area of quantum technologies (quantum communications – quantum computing – quantum materials – quantum sensing – quantum simulation) by identifying the strength of funding commitments from interested industrial organizations to invest in the use-inspired research roadmap we seek to create through this workshop.

The aim of this action-oriented workshop is fairly simple, albeit ambitious:

What type of industry-inspired, industry-initiated academic research consortia will help US industry maintain and enhance its global leadership and competitive position in application areas involving quantum science and technologies and serve the commercial needs of companies that would participate and invest in such consortia?

The workshop will be held March 14-15, 2018 at the Institute for Creative Technologies at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California, which has kindly agreed to serve as our host and co-sponsor.
