Different focus, one goal

Our hubs working together to reach results

Let’s introduce
Our hubs

Despite being a small country, the Netherlands is well endowed with expertise and facilities in the field of quantum technology. The backbone of the nation’s unique knowledge and innovation landscape is formed by five specialist innovation hubs. Each hub contains of research institutes, university, companies and start-ups/scale-ups and with a different focus. All these parties have a strong focus on collaborative research and innovation, not only with one another, but also with national and international enterprises.

  • Delft: quantum computing, internet & network, with QuTech, Kavli Institute, Microsoft, Intel and others
  • Amsterdam:  applied quantum algorithms, quantum sensing & simulation, with QuSoft, CWI, UvA, VU, SURFsara and others
  • Leiden: applied quantum algorithms, with aQa, Google, Shell, Volkswagen, Total and others
  • Eindhoven: post-quantum crypto, quantum simulation & materials, with ASML, ThermoFisher, NanoLabNL and others
  • Twente: quantum electronics and quantum photonics, with MESA+, Lockheed Martin, QuiX, Imec and others
