Logo BiQuTe

The Bicocca Quantum Technologies interdepartmental Center (BiQuTe) has three objectives to pave the way for a positive impact of Quantum Technologies (QT) on industry and society:

  • Develop new skills and roles in QT;
  • Expand education programmes in QT;
  • Increase open innovation in the QT area between universities and companies.

With these objectives in mind, BiQuTe aims to create an interdepartmental research and development infrastructure that on the one hand provides instrumental support for multidisciplinary (Physics, Material Sciences, Computer Sciences) and coordinated frontier research in the field of QT and on the other hand constitutes a space for interaction and intellectual synergy to stimulate new applied research in contiguous areas (Biology, Medicine, Environmental Sciences), in related areas (Economics, Sociology), and for technology transfer with the Lombardy manufacturing reality. The Center also aims to be an important platform for both Master and PhD training, making available advanced QT infrastructures in both fundamental and applied research.

The Center currently has about 50 affiliated members belonging to the the participating Departments:

The Center is based at the Department of Physics “G. Occhialini”. The scientific committee which coordinates the activity of the center is composed by:
