EvolutionQ, a leading quantum-safe cybersecurity company founded and led by Executive Director of the Institute for Quantum Computing Norbert Lütkenhaus, and IQC faculty member Michele Mosca, recently announced their latest partnership with SandboxAQ, an enterprise Saas company. This partnership was formed in relation to evolutionQ’s Series A funding and its recent grant of $7 million in funding, which will help organizations like SandboxAQ prepare for quantum computers.
EvolutionQ, founded by Norbert Lütkenhaus, Executive Director of the Institute for Quantum Computing, and IQC faculty member Michele Mosca, has secured $7 million in funding for quantum-safe cybersecurity. EvolutionQ is looking to help organizations prepare themselves for quantum computers. Their Series A financing is led by Quantonation, a Paris-based, quantum technology-focused VC fund, with support from Toronto’s The Group Ventures, to “scale up” its quantum-safe cybersecurity tech.

In Person & Virtual
In “Quantum Steampunk”, the exciting new book from Harvard physicist Dr. Nicole Yunger Halpern, the industrial revolution meets the quantum-technology revolution. While readers follow the adventures of a rag-tag steampunk crew on trains, dirigibles, and automobiles, they explore questions such as, “Can quantum physics revolutionize engines?” and “What deeper secrets can quantum information reveal about the trajectory of time?” Join Dr.
In celebration of World Quantum Day, join IQC's Senior Manager of Scientific Outreach, John Donohue, for some fun light experiments with Exploring By The Seat Of Your Pants.
Join alum Corey Rae McRae, PhD ’18, as she shares her career journey and talks about current research.
Corey Rae McRae is the director of the Boulder Cryogenic Quantum Testbed, as well as a research associate at the University of Colorado Boulder and NIST Boulder. Her research focuses on materials and metrology for superconducting quantum computing. McRae grew up in London, ON, and received her PhD from IQC in 2018 from Matteo Mariantoni's group. She credits her research success to cold calling and not being afraid to get in over her head.
We're teaming up with the Kitchener Public Library for a free, virtual talk on the book titled "Where did the universe come from?". The co-authors, Chris and Geraint, will talk about the fascinating exploration of the vastness of the universe.
