QuTech is a mission-driven research institute of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO). Together, we work on a radically new technology with world-changing potential. Our mission: to develop scalable prototypes of a quantum computer and an inherently safe quantum internet, based on the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics.
To achieve these ambitious goals, we bring together scientists, engineers and industry in an inspiring environment. We are jointly creating the quantum future, because we believe that quantum technology can be a game changer in many social and economic sectors, including health, agriculture, climate and safety.
QuTech is currently housed in the B and E wings of the TNW Applied Sciences building. A new QuTech building is being developed on the TU Delft Campus South.
- The QuTech partnership launched on 1 June 2015, when a partner covenant was signed by TU Delft, TNO, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), and TKI Holland High Tech.
- QuTech was awarded the National Icon status by the Dutch government because of its pioneering and innovative character, the economic potential for the Netherlands and the possible contribution to major societal challenges.
- QuTech’s research and engineering activities are organised along three divisions: Quantum Computing, Quantum Internet and Qubit Research.
