About us

Our goal is to make Norway “quantum ready”

The background for this center is the emergence of quantum computers, which many experts regard as one of the most important disruptive technologies in the near future. There is a huge investment in this type of technology from governments, research programs, companies and venture capitalists. The total spending on quantum initiatives worldwide in 2020 is estimated to be 22 billion USD. It is vital for Norway to start to build the necessary expertise in order to become “quantum ready”. This center gathers a strong interdisciplinary, cross-institutional team of researchers from UiO, NTNU and SINTEF in order to promote quantum technology, establish contact with internationally leading expert groups, as well as to work together with industrial partners. Highlighting potential use cases and joining forces to build the necessary expertise will be vital.
