As quantum information science and technology (QIST) matures, it will lead to revolutionary applications commercialized through goods and services, many of which are now unknown or envisioned only in a general way.

To best serve as a source of those early applications, the CUbit Quantum Initiative will:

  •  Seek continuing guidance regarding both research and training from companies that have begun to include quantum technologies in their strategic plans
  •  Foster industry research partnerships across the four technical pillars and among the participating organizations
  •  Establish an internship channel through which students advanced in their respective training programs engage directly in QIST projects at host companies
  •  Encourage companies to use specialized laboratory or prototyping facilities within CUbit
