Taking a leap into the future

The Netherlands is ready for the quantum decade

Quantum Delta NL - Platform
A strong national ecosystem
What is Quantum
Delta NL?

The Netherlands is a vibrant international hotspot for quantum technology, with leading science, technology and talent. With Quantum Delta NL, we are creating a fully functional national ecosystem for excellence in quantum innovation, for highly talented professionals to bring quantum computers, quantum networks and quantum sensors to the market.

Igniting the quantum revolution

The Netherlands has the vision, technology, talent and partnerships to move to the forefront of this complex field, becoming a dynamic Quantum Delta NL. Successful development and innovative application of quantum technology require us to overcome major scientific and technological challenges and integrate diverse technologies and disciplines, adopting a targeted strategy and approach backed by all parties in the ecosystem. By working together, we can simultaneously lift technology readiness levels across the board.

First European Quantum Computer

In the context of the CAT 1 programme, the first demonstrator has been launched: Quantum Inspire. This platform offers access to two promising qubit types from Delft and an emulator for SURFsara, the supercomputer in Amsterdam. Quantum Inspire provides simultaneous access to multiple high-potential qubit platforms. Combining solid hardware with software development is also unique: you can test applications on a real system. And, unlike commercial platforms, Quantum Inspire is no black box; this open platform allows users to create their own value.

European Quantum Software Institute launched in Paris

On November 8th, the European Quantum Software Institute (EQSI) was launched with a stakeholder event in Paris. EQSI aims to further align development processes and jointly achieve responsible innovation in Europe for Quantum Software and Quantum Algorithms, through co-creation with industry and Quantum Hardware partners.
