News from Quantum Business Network - 1/2020

Dear Quantum Enthusiast,

During the first months of 2020 QBN members came up with great news and QBN increased its activities.

IQM expands to Germany to drive quantum hardware-software co-design and the Fraunhofer IAF will build an application lab for quantum sensors. We also highly welcome the publication of Europe's Strategic Research Agenda on quantum technologies and the announced initiative of the German governement to invest € 300 m in quantum computing.

The four series of QBN meetings on the four major applied areas of quantum technologies will provide experts from industry and academia a trustful environment for professional exchange and personal networking. So save the date for the upcoming QBN meetings on quantum sensing and quantum simulation and stay tuned for the other meetings´ dates.

If you are interested in innovation clusters and their impact, we recommend 'build you cluster strategy'.

Enjoy reading and stay safe!

Kind regards,
Johannes Verst
