IQM welcomes the joint statement from the virtual summit between the Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin and the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to deepen partnership between Finland and India in several areas, including Quantum computing and sustainable development.
Joint India-Finland bilateral collaboration on Quantum Computers announced in the prime minister’s summit boosts IQM’s plans to look into opportunities to expand in India and our mission to build quantum computers for the well-being of humankind.
We welcome the commitment by both the leaders towards quantum technologies. As the European leader in building superconducting quantum computers, we are honoured to build Finland’s first Quantum computer as part of an innovation project with VTT. We are also leading the EU consortium that has received funding from the German Ministry of Education and Research to commercialize application-specific quantum processors.
As part of this bilateral partnership, we look forward to collaborating with the departments of science and technology, and other stakeholders on the follow-up to this joint statement. At IQM, we also look forward to this opportunity to be a part of the Indian quantum ecosystem, conduct joint research, and build superconducting quantum computers in India.
