UIDP Webinar Recording: Center for Quantum Technologies: A Proposed Industry-University Cooperative Research Center

The Center for Quantum Technologies (CQT) is a partnership between Purdue University, Indiana University, the University of Notre Dame, and Indiana University Purdue University – Indianapolis (IUPUI). The mission of the CQT is to collaborate with industry and government stakeholders to identify compelling needs and challenges, and then develop novel quantum technologies to address them. Quantum technologies are governed by the physics of sub-atomic particles and have relevance to computing, sensing, imaging, metrology, communications, and cryptography. Because of their applicability, quantum technologies have the potential to be truly transformative, with uses in intelligence, financial security, computing, medicine, and navigation, among others. In partnership with our industrial members, the CQT researchers will use their expertise in quantum science and engineering to develop and transfer foundational knowledge into industry-friendly quantum devices, systems, and algorithms with enhanced functionality and performance. Additionally, the CQT will help train the next generation of quantum scientists and engineers to support the currently shorthanded quantum workforce. Presenters discussed the key benefits to industry members joining this Center.
