University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and University of Chicago lead quantum education program
The Grainger College of Engineering’s Illinois Quantum Information Science and Technology Center (IQUIST) and the University of Chicago will co-lead an ambitious program to support quantum education workforce development across the country.
Called Q2Work, the program is supported by a three-year, $750,000 award from the National Science Foundation.
Midwest collaboration, led by IQUIST, awarded $25 million quantum information institute
The Grainger College of Engineering’s Illinois Quantum Information Science and Technology Center (IQUIST)will launch a National Science Foundation Quantum Leap Challenge Institute for Hybrid Quantum Architectures and Networks (HQAN). The collaborative institute spans three Midwest research powerhouses, all of which are members of the Chicago Quantum Exchange: The University of Illinois, University of Chicago, and the University of Wisconsin. HQAN also includes partnerships with industry and government labs.
The Illinois Quantum Information Science and Technology Center (IQUIST) brings together physicists, engineers, computer scientists, and mathematicians to advance quantum information science and train a quantum-smart workforce. The center is a core member of the Chicago Quantum Exchange and is accelerating innovation through partnerships spanning academia, government, and industry.
