(November 10, 2022) The Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) five National Quantum Information Science Research Centers (NQISRCs) are leveraging the behavior of nature at the smallest scales to develop technologies for science’s most complex problems. While having their own unique areas of expertise and resources, the NQISRCs are all aligned to the same mission—the advancement of quantum information science.
Funded by DOE’s Office of Science, the NQISRCs have been supporting DOE’s mission since 2020 to advance the energy, economic and national security of the United States. By building a national quantum ecosystem and workforce comprising researchers at roughly 70 institutions across the United States, the centers create a rich environment for quantum innovation and co-design.
To learn more about how the DOE NQISRCs are harnessing the quantum revolution by leading with science, collaborating for quantum innovation, and preparing the quantum workforce and engaging with industry, please see their joint story on the websites of the five lead laboratories:
