In April 2020, Europe’s first public quantum computing platform was launched, called Quantum Inspire. Delft-based QuTech, a collaboration between TU Delft and TNO, developed Quantum Inspire to make the quantum computer accessible to everyone. It is the first in the world to use a quantum processor made of scalable spin qubits.
Many companies looking to get into the quantum game find everything they need in greater Rotterdam – The Hague, according to recent reports. In 2019, the Netherlands was recognized with the most competitive economy in Europe by the World Economic Forum.
Our track record over the last decade speaks for itself. Among others, the first generation of flux qubits was developed Delft, as well as the first loophole-free bell test in 2015 – both important milestones that would take more than a blog post to explain! As recently as 2018, it was the first to show on-demand quantum entanglement. To the world of quantum technology, they are stand-out achievements key to the success of future projects. MIT’s breakthrough technology report 2020 featured Delft University, which created a data-linking system joining four cities. The university is also the home of the aforementioned QuTech, the original team seeking to design the first European quantum computer, using a 135 million euro investment to develop the hardware.
