The Quantum Economic Development Consortium

Advances in quantum applications are emerging at an accelerating pace and around the world—promising the ability to solve problems beyond the reach of current computers, ultra-sensitive measurements, and provably secure communications. The U.S. National Quantum Initiative Act passed in December 2018 not only calls for agencies to fund research, it also envisioned a consortium of businesses and other stakeholders to ensure the NQI coordinates and collaborates with the private sector.

The Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C) https://www.quantumconsortium.org/, which aims to enable and grow the U.S. quantum industry and associated supply chain, has over 100 participants, including Cryomech. QED-C brings industry together to identify high impact applications and gaps in the enabling technologies, standards, and “quantum ready” workforce needed to realize those applications.  QED-C also provides an industry voice to the government agencies that have a role in advancing quantum information science and technology.

Cryomech is excited to be part of QED-C and part of the future quantum economy.
