Tyndall have been at the forefront of quantum technology research in Ireland for 10 years and is the home to the greatest number of quantum researchers in Ireland. They are now formally launching their quantum research programme and vision through their new Quantum Computer Engineering Centre, a step that will guide Ireland towards becoming the best place in the world to realise quantum systems and technologies.

Building on the publication of their paper in 2019 “Positioning Ireland for the quantum opportunity”, which led to the establishment of a National Forum, led by Science Foundation Ireland, this new centre will significantly leverage the Irish deep-tech industrial base and strong innovation culture.

Speakers will share their research and industry perspectives on why Quantum Technology and Quantum Computer Engineering in particular, is attracting so much interest internationally and what this means for Ireland.

Speakers include

  • Professor Dominic O’Brien, QCS Hub Director, UK Quantum Computing & Simulation Hub
  • Dr James Clarke, Director of Quantum Hardware, Intel Corporation, USA
  • Dr Ruoyi Zhou, Director of IBM Research, Ireland
  • Professor J.C. Seamus Davis, University College Cork and Oxford University
  • Professor Tommaso Calarco, Chair, European Quantum Community Network

The event will also feature insightful contributions from many organisations, agencies and partners across Ireland’s quantum ecosystem, including IDA and Science Foundation Ireland.

Professor William Scanlon  and the Tyndall team hope that you can join them and look forward to sharing with you their next ambitious new chapter.
