In this talk Anna Grassellino will describe the mission, goals and the partnership strengths of the new US National Quantum Information Research Center SQMS. SQMS brings the power of DOE laboratories, together with industry, academia and other federal entities, to achieve transformational advances in the major cross-cutting challenge of understanding and eliminating the decoherence mechanisms in superconducting 2D and 3D devices, with the final goal of enabling construction and deployment of superior quantum systems for computing and sensing. SQMS combines the strengths of an array of experts and world-class facilities towards these common goals. The Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) is the only non-US partner of the project and the local unit at the University of Milano-Bicocca is directly involved in the project.
