Quantum Technology Innovation

ACADEMIC FUNDING TRACK

Does your business have an innovation project in quantum technology? Would you like to benefit from high-calibre research teams in universities and other research centres?

Are you a researcher with R&D projects in quantum technology? Do you wish to collaborate with a private business?

Whether your project is in quantum communications, quantum computation, quantum programming, quantum computing, metrology or quantum detection, the Quantum Technology program with its ACADEMIC funding track will help you fund a collaborative R&D project.

“The future of innovation will be strongly marked by quantum technologies. Quebec can now position itself as a key player in this next revolution. From the components of quantum computers to the infrastructure needed for quantum communication, everything can be done here and can transform life sciences, sustainable development, transportation and logistics at quantum speed!”
