The National Growth Fund awarded Quantum Delta NL with a €615 million euros investment for the further development of Quantum Technology on 9 April 2021. Incredible news for the entire Netherlands’ quantum ecosystem! Through the National Growth Fund, the Dutch government invests €20 billion over the next five years, in ‘projects that foster economic growth in the long term’.
Quantum Delta NL’s proposal was part of the R&D cluster, submitted by the Ministry of Economic Aairs and Climate Policy. Our proposal has a clear focus and direction, which led to its full endorsement by the Committee.

Quantum Delta NL in a nutshell
Quantum Delta NL is the public-private partnership of global tech companies, government agencies, and major quantum research centers in the Netherlands. The mission of Quantum Delta NL is to position the Netherlands as a leading ecosystem in quantum technologies.
The Quantum Delta NL ecosystem invests in 3 areas of quantum technology:
We call these CATs, which stands for ‘Catalyst programmes’. To realise these emerging quantum technologies, we need a strong foundation. Therefore, we invest in:
We call these the 4 action lines. Underneath the 3 CATs and 4 Action lines, we’re building national cleanroom facilities, accessible to everyone.
