The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has unveiled a new website and a report that identifies priority areas that require continued research to advance quantum information science.
“With the launch of Quantum.gov, the White House has created an online home for the National Quantum Coordination Office (NQCO) and a new digital hub for the growing quantum community to connect with wide-ranging activities underway across the Federal Government,” Michael Kratsios, U.S. chief technology officer and a 2020 Wash100 Award winner, said in a statement published Wednesday.
“The newly published Quantum Frontiers Report lays out critical research questions for the entire U.S. innovation ecosystem to tackle in the years ahead, and will serve as an important roadmap for researchers around the country,” Kratsios added.
The Quantum Frontiers Report was based on insights from federal, academic and industry leaders and determines areas for continued QIS research, including materials science and quantum information technology for precision measurements.
The official NQCO website will include news on QIS efforts across the federal government as well as reports, documents and information on agency programs.
