Quantum Technology Innovation

INDUSTRY FUNDING TRACK

Are you a Quebec SME or startup with a research project in quantum technology?

Whether your project concerns quantum communications, quantum computation, quantum materials, quantum metrology or detection, the Quantum Technology program with its Industry component will help you fund a joint research project with another SME or startup.

“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!”
