Building the next generation of quantum computers with unparalleled know-how.

IQM Founding Team

OUR STORY

IQM was founded by a highly ambitious team of world-leading scientists having built several successful quantum labs and research centers globally during the past two decades.

The team’s pioneering work started with breakthroughs in qubit reset, readout, and thermal management towards large-scale quantum processors. Since then, the work has progressed to unique hardware advantages and novel concepts around digital-analog quantum computing.

Our Nordic values and the vibrant local collaborative environment give us a unique advantage in paving the way for quantum technologies and ecosystems globally.

IQM is the European leader for quantum computers

IQM is building the quantum computers of tomorrow — today.

HARDWARE EXPERTISE

IQM is a leading quantum computing hardware company and a key player in Europe's vibrant quantum ecosystem.

Our key partners are involved in groundbreaking work to accelerate superconducting quantum circuits and quantum computing. IQM also benefits from access to world-class infrastructure for low-temperature physics, fabrication, and high-performance computing.

IQM also has the largest industrial hardware team of world-class quantum experts in Europe with over 640+ scientific publications and over 27000 citations.

EUROPEAN STRENGTH

IQM lives the European values to solve one of the greatest technological challenges globally: building useful quantum computers. We follow a collaborative approach including academia, public, and private organizations.

As a spinoff of Aalto University and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, IQM’s core technology builds upon decades of research from the world-renowned Quantum Computing and Devices (QCD) lab. This know-how is combined with the experience of world-renown quantum computing experts from Bilbao, Munich, Zurich, Delft, and several other locations around the world.

Security, trust, and our Nordic heritage give us a unique edge in global collaboration and innovation.
