QuantumBW is a major innov­a­tion initi­at­ive for quantum techno­lo­gies in the state of Baden-Württemberg. It bundles activ­it­ies and initi­at­ives with the aim of further strength­en­ing exist­ing activ­it­ies and clusters, and of increas­ing their inter­na­tional visibility.

About QuantumBW

IQST is an integ­ral part of this initi­at­ive and actively supports, drives and helps 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 further devel­op­ment of a quantum ecosys­tem in the state of Baden-Württemberg, in which academic insti­tu­tions, global indus­trial players and start-ups join forces — thereby trans­lat­ing funda­mental quantum science into techno­lo­gies to address societal challenges and open up new markets.

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

QuantumBW aims to

  • strengthen and accel­er­ate innov­a­tions in the field of quantum techno­lo­gies through application-oriented, collab­or­at­ive research and devel­op­ment projects;
  • create and expand product­ive infra­struc­tures for collab­or­a­tion between academia, business and investors;
  • promote the train­ing and quali­fic­a­tion of special­ists, junior staff and train­ees in academia and business and create local condi­tions that will attract top talent;
  • support a vibrant entre­pren­eur­ial envir­on­ment that encour­ages start-ups from within the academic and business communit­ies and promotes invest­ment.

Partic­u­larly in the areas of quantum sensor techno­logy, quantum comput­ing and quantum networks, and the neces­sary enabling techno­lo­gies these measures will pave the way for new ideas and lay the found­a­tion for the evolu­tion of a power­ful ecosys­tem in Baden-Württemberg – THE LÄND of quantum technology.
