TNO, Nederlandse Organisatie voor Toegepast Natuurwetenschappelijk Onderzoek (the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research) already a member of aQNetwork, becomes a member of the “QuantumPath® Research Community”. This agreement opens up a promising horizon for collaboration between TNO and aQuantum.
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, a company that provides tools for the development of quantum algorithms and apps, services and processes that enable the integration of hybrid quantum/classical information systems, intends to promote networking of centers and universities interested in quantum technology research. To this end aQuantum hosts and maintains QuantumPath® software.
The QuantumPath® Research Partner Agreement provides organizations such as TNO with access to and use of QuantumPath®, the platform for the development and life cycle of quantum algorithms and software applications. To achieve the expected goals of the collaboration, aQuantum and TNO will carry out several Proofs of Concept (PoC) and industrial case studies in this area with QuantumPath®.
At aQuantum we are very excited about the start of this new collaboration with TNO and we are convinced that collaborating around QuantumPath® will allow us to successfully achieve our goals of applying Quantum Software Engineering and Programming to the real world.
