Centre for Quantum and Society

As a facilitator of a range of research initiatives, events, and tools, the Centre for Quantum and Society seeks to better understand the societal effects of quantum technologies and inform the broader quantum community about these impacts.

The Centre for Quantum and Society is a knowledge and co-creation center dedicated to maximizing the positive impact of quantum technologies on society.

We facilitate ground-breaking academic research into ethics, legal frameworks, and effective communication surrounding the impact of quantum technologies. 

  • We develop tools to assess quantum applications’ ethical, legal, and societal aspects and set governance guidelines. 

  • We support startups, small businesses, and corporate innovation teams in understanding the impact of their quantum innovations on their sector, customers, and society. 

  • We initiate mission-driven innovation in quantum projects.

We are looking for a diverse group of stakeholders to jointly realize a positive societal impact with quantum technologies. Come join us!
