The Deep Tech Lab – Quantum will be operated as part of the Danish BioInnovation Institute (BII) in Copenhagen in cooperation with the Niels Bohr Institute at Copenhagen University, Denmark’s Technical University, Aarhus University, and the Danish National Metrology Institute. Their mission is to leverage Denmark’s world-leading research in quantum physics with BII’s recognized excellence in creating, fostering, and maturing start-up and spin-out companies within the Life Science field. They will support early-stage companies based on quantum and quantum-enabling technologies with programs tailored for this field and with the same goal of ensuring that they too can realize their full commercial potential. Their tailored programs will focus on developing interdisciplinary teams, identifying and developing the most promising business case(s), and determining the most suitable technology development pathways for commercial viability and company growth.

The first acceleration program will be run as an affiliated member of NATO’s Defence Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (DIANA) Challenge Program, starting in the Fall of 2023. A goal of this accelerator will be to have up to 20 quantum startups when operations are fully up and running in 2025. A post announcing the inauguration and additional background and an FAQ list about this new initiative about the program can be found here.
