Global Quantum Leap: The next big leap starts with something small

International consortium for advancing nanofabrication infrastructure and quantum technology

On Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th February 2021, OpenSuperQ will participate in the kick-off of Global Quantum Leap (GQL). The GQL is an international "network-of-networks" linking nanofabrication technologies with quantum information sciences. GQL, which has received a $2 million grant from the Nation Science Foundation (NSF), brings together key nodes within the NSF-funded National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) and complementary networks in the US and across the globe working on quantum technologies.

GQL has three main goals:

GQL will lay the foundation to develop a globally-aware workforce that can shape future innovations in quantum technology and will fundamentally influence the overall trajectory for quantum manufacturing development.

International partners of GQL include the Nanoplatform Japan (NPJ), the German Excellence Cluster ML4Q, and the Chicago Quantum Exchange (CQE), which is based in the U.S. and includes partners in the Netherlands and Australia.
