Transformative Quantum Technologies
University of Waterloo
200 University Ave. West
Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
The Transformative Quantum Technologies (TQT) program at the University of Waterloo aims to advance the uses of quantum mechanics from laboratory curiosity to an impactful device. Funded by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF), TQT aims to deliver on the quantum promise.
For over 50 years quantum mechanics has been the domain of mathematicians, physical scientists and engineers. Today, there are quantum devices that work outside of the lab and are ready for adoption in broad areas of society. TQT will develop new quantum devices and work with early adopters to explore potential applications.
TQT is pleased to announce that the third round of the Quantum Quest Seed Fund (QQSF) is now open to applications.
The QQSF is a two-year grant meant to support UW tenure-track faculty working on new ideas in quantum research. For more information, see the QQSF page.
The deadline for applications is June 26th, 2018.
TQT will host several Lunch and Learn events during March and April. Here is the schedule:
