November 9, 2020

Canada’s Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the United Kingdom’s UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) have collaborated on a quantum technologies program, which will see eight projects share a Canadian investment of $4.4M and a UK grant of £2M. The projects will be each taken on by one UK business lead and one Canadian academic lead. The University of Waterloo will co-lead a project on quantum technology in communications networks. Université de Sherbrooke will co-lead a project on the development of microelectric circuits for use in quantum technology. McGill University will co-lead a project that researches how silicon might be used in quantum computing. NSERC (International)
