What the Swiss Quantum Initiative means for EPFL's Quantum Community

— To solidify and strengthen Switzerland’s leading position in quantum, in 2022 the Swiss Federal Council formed the Swiss Quantum Initiative (SQI). This initiative is led by the Swiss Quantum Commission, a group of experts from academia and industry across Switzerland, including EPFL professor Anna Fontcuberta i Morral.


The QSE Center engages in international science diplomacy

— Quantum is an international strategic political and multilateral topic in itself. For the EPFL Center for Quantum Science and Engineering (QSE Center), it is important to engage with different stakeholders internationally, such as policy makers, diplomats, ecosystem builders from the early stage. To this end, the Center has been participating in events to learn, share and network with the international science policy and diplomacy community.
