The Quantum Algorithms Institute has been recently established on the Surrey campus of Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada to bring industry, academia, and government together to accelerate the innovation and commercialization of quantum technologies. These funds were provided by Western Economic Diversification Canada to harness British Columbia’s growing global reputation as a leader in quantum computing. The institute will use the funds to create a state-of-the-art physical hub to facilitate engagement activities such as hosting collaborative events between local and international players from industry and academia, promote collaboration between existing quantum companies and potential new customers and help the institute train and grow a world-leading talent pool for this emerging industry. Additional information is available in news releases from Western Economic Diversification Canada and also Simon Fraser University which can be found here and here.
