VCQ

The Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology (VCQ) is a joint initiative of the University of Vienna, the Vienna University of Technology, the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and the Institute of Science and Technology Austria, which unites quantum physicists of Vienna’s research institutions in one collaborative center. VCQ will set new impulses for research and teaching through its unique spectrum of research topics – from fundamental quantum physics to novel quantum technologies.
