CERN defined through its Quantum Technology Initiative (CERN QTI) a roadmap and research programme in quantum technologies.
It establishes a dialogue between the high-energy physics and quantum-tech communities to find opportunities for mutually beneficial collaborations. Indeed, many of the extreme requirements faced by quantum technologies are shared with high-energy physics such as algorithms, precise timing, the need for superconducting materials, and more. In this context, CERN seeks to engage with industry and research institutes that wish to tap into CERN’s unique expertise for future innovations and knowledge-transfer partnerships.
In this talk, Benjamin Frisch from CERN’s Knowledge Transfer group will present CERN’s QTI, and discuss technologies of interest for both quantum-tech and particle physics.
