Three QuSoft research projects won Quantum Delta NL award

The National Growth Fund program Quantum Technology, carried out by NWO in collaboration with Quantum Delta NL, Actionline 1 ‘Research & Innovation’, has awarded 10.4 million euros to projects with the theme of quantum innovation: quantum sensing applications, quantum computing, and quantum networking.

Three of the projects belong to QuSoft researchers: ‘Quantum-enhanced sensing of quantum chemistry and interactions’ by Dr. Rene Gerritsma and ‘Computing with qudits’ by Dr. Maris Ozols & Prof.dr Florian Schreck, will be carried out by UvA researchers and ‘Rolling the quantum dice: better quantum computers through randomness’ by Dr. Jonas Helsen, CWI.

The goal of Quantum Delta NL and NWO is to realize the much-needed scientific and technological breakthroughs in the field of quantum technology. Quantum Delta NL has reserved a total of 42 million euros for the Action Line ‘research and innovation’, over a period of seven years. The aim is to strengthen the scientific basis of Quantum technology.

Just like in the 2022 call, PhD researchers could apply for a personal research budget. This measure was introduced to strengthen the basis for the Netherlands’ leading position in quantum research. Of the nineteen projects awarded, two are from such young researchers. Four of the 19 applicants awarded are women. We recognize these numbers can still room improve, and we are committed to putting resources into further achieving a better gender balance.
