QuantumBW launched

On 21 April 2023, QuantumBW — a major innova­tion initia­tive for quantum technolo­gies of the state of Baden-Württemberg — has been launched in the Centre for Applied Quantum Technol­ogy at the Univer­sity of Stuttgart by Minis­ter Presi­dent Winfried Kretschmann, Minis­ter of Science Petra Olschowski and Minis­ter of Econom­ics Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut, together with partners from science and indus­try, many of them members of or associ­ated with IQST. QuantumBW will bundle activ­i­ties and initia­tives, with the aim of further strength­en­ing exist­ing activ­i­ties and clusters, and increas­ing their inter­na­tional visibil­ity even more.

IQST is delighted to be an integral part of this excit­ing initia­tive. We will actively support, drive and help to shape the mission of QuantumBW. This includes in partic­u­lar enabling close collab­o­ra­tion between indus­try and acade­mia with flexi­ble access to research infra­struc­ture, and the contin­ued build-up of a quantum ecosys­tem in the state of Baden-Württemberg, so that acade­mic insti­tu­tions, global indus­trial players and start-ups can join forces efficiently.

The QuantumBW office, which coordi­nates the activ­i­ties of the innova­tion initia­tive and serves as the first point of contact, is managed by IQST, together with the Fraun­hofer Insti­tutes for Applied Solid State Physics (IAF) and for Indus­trial Engineer­ing (IAO), and is jointly funded by the Baden-Württemberg Ministries of Science, Research and the Arts and Econom­ics, Labour and Tourism.
