COMING EARLY 2021

The industrialization of quantum computing will bring about a fundamental shift in complex problem-solving in areas like drug discovery, grid optimization, personalized medicine, AI, and more.

With the passing of the bipartisan National Quantum Initiative Act in 2018, global leadership in quantum technologies is a strategic imperative. Regional assets across research, technology, domain expertise, investment, and federal policy make Greater Washington uniquely positioned to establish a world-class quantum ecosystem.

QUANTUM TECHNOLOGIES ARE RAPIDLY MATURING

and hold great promise for addressing critical world challenges.

PREPARING FOR THE QUANTUM ERA

Our region is seizing the historic opportunity to come together across borders and disciplines to provide national quantum leadership that drives innovation, economic development, and positive social impact globally. 

 

On October 15, the Strategic Renewal Task Force adopted a recommendation to accelerate the formation of an integrated and inclusive quantum innovation community, and launch the Potomac Quantum Innovation Center.
