Transformative Quantum Technologies (TQT) at the University of Waterloo has developed a collaborative community of researchers, world-class infrastructure and a unique quantum innovation cycle for the development of impactful quantum technologies.
The Quantum Alliance (QA) program connects industry, academics and other stakeholders and engages organizations as partners in a consortium, pooling resources and knowledge to develop applications of quantum technology.
TQT brings its depth of knowledge in quantum information science and engineering. It provides a unique development setting with specialized infrastructure and knowledgeable staff.
Partners bring application focus and share in science and technology advances, exchange of infrastructure expertise and opportunities to explore the power of quantum in new settings.
Join the Quantum Alliance to connect with a like-minded group of professionals engaged in applying quantum technologies and be among the first to bring quantum’s transformative potential to your business.
Co-investment: Ideas may come from anywhere. Share your ideas for how quantum might disrupt your industry, how your product might be quantum-enhanced or where investments in new quantum tools might bring about the insights you need to deliver a valuable product or service to your customers.
You will also hear ideas from others across the Quantum Alliance, including everyone from quantum technology providers to established multinational industries, early adopters to academics. You will have the opportunity to partner in the development of ideas, fueling the innovation cycle, and implement quantum solutions to your problems.
Sample activities that may be supported:
– Focused workshops
– Technical analysis or whitepapers
– Acquisition of new scientific equipment or systems
– Process development
– Joint applications to funding agencies
Focused Workshops: Suggest topics around a specific technical question relevant to your business or sector.
Invite-only Annual Quantum Opportunities & Showcase: Receive an exclusive invitation to meet annually, share ideas, identify needs, develop joint activities and contribute towards the delivery of impactful quantum outcomes. Learn about the state-of-the-art of quantum technologies under development at TQT, promising new directions, what challenges remain and how these are being overcome.
Embedded Researchers:Bring your researchers to TQT to discover the quantum opportunity for themselves. Embedded researchers may embark upon projects relevant to their business in an immersive setting while participating in TQT’s quantum innovation cycle.
Quantum Briefings: Exclusive opportunity to receive customized executive briefings on quantum fundamentals and applications.
Access to Quantum Talent: Waterloo graduates some of the most in-demand quantum talent in the world through its masters, PhD and post-doctoral fellowship programs.
How It Works
QA partners will have the opportunity to suggest ideas and hear from other QA partners. QA partners will decide collectively on the most impactful use of their resources.
TQT is a collaborative research initiative led by the University of Waterloo and the technology development arm of the Institute of Quantum Computing. It aims to accelerate the development and deployment of impactful quantum technologies.
Applications: TQT is currently accepting applications on a limited basis from organizations interested in joining the Quantum Alliance.
Who Should Join
Quantum will impact every industry. Anyone who might benefit from a quantum solution is invited to participate.
