TNO, Nederlandse Organisatie voor Toegepast Natuurwetenschappelijk Onderzoek (the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research) becomes a “Research Partner” and a “Solution Partner” of the aQuantum Partner Network (aQNetwork).
TNO was founded by law in 1932 to enable business and government to apply knowledge. TNO connects people and knowledge to create innovations that boost the competitive strength of industry and the well-being of society in a sustainable way. TNO has more than 3,400 professionals focused on ten societal areas: Artificial Intelligence; Defence, Safety & Security; Energy Transition; Industry; Buildings, Infrastructure & Maritime; Circular Economy & Environment; Healthy Living; Traffic & Transport; Information & Communication Technology; Strategic Analysis & Policy; and Tech Transfer.
It is also worth noting that TNO together with the Delft University of Technology have created QuTech an institute for advanced research in the field of quantum computing and quantum internet.
aQuantum and TNO ICT area will collaborate on applied research and development of quantum algorithms and applications, developing solutions for real world problems and, in this way, broaden the connection between scientific developments in quantum computing and solutions promoted by companies and contribute to reducing the gap between academic research and industrial applications of quantum computing.
This agreement between the TNO and aQuantum not only brings an advantageous collaboration for both organizations, but also allows aQuantum to continue its constant commitment with the Talavera Manifesto and to promote research on Quantum Software Engineering and Programming through all possible channels. Additionally, this collaboration will enable aQuantum to expand its efforts in offering useful quantum software tools, which is a global fundamental need to contribute to the advancement of the adoption of the quantum computing and programming in the real world.
This collaboration will be advantageous for both parts, allowing us to collaborate with more experts and professionals, sharing with them our knowledge, facilitating the research use of our technological solutions through QuantumPath® and expanding also the horizon of Quantum Software Engineering and Programming in Europe.
At aQuantum we are very excited about the start of this collaboration with TNO and we are convinced that this collaboration will bring new and interesting results to our research and development activities.
