The International Symposium on Quantum Science,
Technology and Innovation

Welcome to Quantum Innovation 2021

It is our pleasure to invite all of you, scientists, engineers, academicians, young researchers,
business delegates and students, from all over the world to attend Quantum Innovation 2021,
the International Symposium on Quantum Science, Technology and Innovation, to be held
on 7-9 December 2021 as Virtual Conference organized and served commemorating the birth
of the Quantum Technology Innovation Hubs.
The aim of Quantum Initiative 2021 is to bring together, a multi-disciplinary group of scientists
and engineers to present and exchange breaking-through ideas related to quantum technologies.
The topics of the meeting cover broad aspects of quantum technology including
quantum computing, quantum sensing, quantum cryptography and quantum communication
with a focus on the latest outstanding achievements in the field of quantum technology
and its future trends and needs.
We welcome you to Quantum Initiative 2021 and look forward to your participation in the meeting with distinguished speakers from different countries around the world sharing new and exciting results and promoting collaborations in Quantum Technology.

About QIH

Quantum technology is bringing a great impact on a wide range of industry. In order to accelerate the progress and make best use of quantum technology, industry, academia and government are expected to collaborate on promoting basic research, technology demonstration, industrialization, intellectual property management and human resource development. For promoting these activities, Japan established Quantum Technology Innovation Hubs in February 2021.

  • Quantum computer development hub in RIKEN
  • Quantum device development hub in National Institute
    of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology(AIST)
  • Quantum computer application hub represented by the University of Tokyo
  • Quantum software innovation hub in Osaka University
  • Quantum security network hub in National Institute
    of Information and Communications Technology(NICT)
  • Quantum life science hub in National Institutes
    for Quantum Science and Technology(QST)
  • Quantum materials research project in National Institute
    for Materials Science(NIMS)
  • Quantum sensors hub represented by Tokyo Institute of Technology

RIKEN serves as Headquarters of the Hubs to incorporate efforts to advance
quantum technology research in Japan.
