Qblox, the first Dutch company to join the QED-C

It is our pleasure to announce that Qblox is the first Dutch company to join the Quantum Economic Development Consortium. We have QED-C MD Celia Merzbacher and Qblox CEO Niels Bultink close the deal with a strong handshake to join the QED-C in the US. The QED-C is an industry-driven consortium with the mission to enable and grow a robust quantum-based industry and related supply chain. QED-C is supported by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and its more than 200 members, including more than 150 corporations from across the quantum supply chain including component suppliers/manufacturers, software and hardware system developers, service providers and end-users. Together, consortium members are identifying use cases of quantum information science and technology and addressing gaps in enabling technologies, standards and benchmarks, and the quantum workforce.

Delft global supplier of quantum hardware through unique collaboration

Many private parties are working, largely individually, on quantum computing. Delft is doing something unique. Here six private parties are working together to get a quantum computer with high-quality equipment up and running: the so-called ImpaQT project. If successful, this will give the region a unique position worldwide as a supplier of quantum equipment. Individual parties, such as large corporates, focus primarily on the greatest possible computing power (qubits). However, they do so with components that are not actually developed for quantum tech, such as relatively large coaxial cables. This will get you a long way, but real upscaling is impossible.
