Cluster of Excellence
On the 27th of September, the project "Matter and Light for Quantum Computing" (ML4Q) was selected for funding as a Cluster of Excellence within the Excellence Strategy of the German Governments. ML4Q is a joint initiative by the universities of Cologne, Aachen, and Bonn, as well as the Research Center Jülich, coordinated by its speaker, Yoichi Ando (Cologne). The aim of the cluster is to develop robust components for quantum computing and networking. The generous funding for the cluster will help to build a major center for these future key technologies. ML4Q is the culmination of a strategic focus on quantum technologies by the four partner institutions. We congratulate all cluster members for this spectacular success.
