QuSoft celebrates five years of cutting edge research on quantum algorithm

Jos Baeten, director of CWI and Peter van Tienderen, dean Faculty of Science have signed the agreement that will continue the collaboration between CWI and the University of Amsterdam on quantum research.

QuSoft is the Dutch research center for quantum software. Its mission is to develop new protocols, algorithms and applications that can be run on small and medium-sized prototypes of a quantum computer. The main focus of QuSoft is on the development of quantum software, which requires fundamentally different techniques and approaches from conventional software.

Since 2015, QuSoft has grown into a leading research institute where over sixty scientists of the Dutch national research institute for mathematics and computer science (CWI) and from the University of Amsterdam work together on fundamental and multidisciplinary quantum research.

‘I am very glad that nine years ago, when I started as director of CWI, Harry Buhrman convinced me to invest in his idea of a new research institute for quantum software,’says Baeten. ‘Together with the University of Amsterdam, CWI has made major investments in making QuSoft successful.’
