This announcement states the Department of Energy’s Office of Science intent to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement. The FOA will seek to fund two or more multidisciplinary quantum information centers to support the research mission enabled by the National Quantum Initiative Act (SciPol Brief available). These centers will bring together research teams from across disciplines to work collaboratively towards understanding and using quantum behavior to create new ways of acquiring and handling information.
Phys.org – Over the past couple of decades, researchers have been developing protocols for anonymously transmitting messages over classical networks, but similar protocols for quantum networks are still in much earlier stages of development.
The forthcoming funding opportunity announcement will seek to establish two or more multidisciplinary Quantum Information Science Centers to perform research to address the opportunities and challenges related to accelerated global activity in quantum science and technology.
SciPol.org invites faculty, researchers, policymakers, and students to consider how they can communicate how scientific research is integrated into the policymaking process. One way is by contributing to SciPol.org as a volunteer author or editor of our original policy development briefs and other related content.
Many philanthropic or community science organizations around the country have made it their mission to improve their local community through science and science advocacy. By joining or starting a local science community group, you can find a way to extend your impact beyond the bench.
