Chicago Quantum Summit to foster national collaborations

Science Innovations

Quantum technology experts from around the country are meeting virtually at the University of Chicago on Nov. 11-13, 2020 to forge new partnerships amid an exciting year for quantum research. The third annual Chicago Quantum Summit will bring together university, government, and industry leaders in the emerging field of quantum information science. It is hosted by the Chicago Quantum Exchange, headquartered at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering and a leading national hub for the science and engineering of quantum information and for training tomorrow’s quantum workforce.

This year’s summit comes on the heels of the U.S. Department of Energy announcing it will fund five new National Quantum Information Science Research Centers, including a center led by Argonne National Laboratory and a center led by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, which are each projected to receive $115 million in funding over the next five years. Both laboratories are affiliated with the University of Chicago. This year, the three-day Quantum Summit will include presentations and discussions that focus on building collaborations between large-scale quantum research centers, companies, and innovators; fostering a quantum economic ecosystem and growing the quantum startup community; and developing a quantum-ready workforce.
