QuSoft is the Dutch research center for quantum software. Its mission is to develop new protocols, algorithms and applications that can be run on small and medium-sized prototypes of a quantum computer. The main focus of QuSoft is on the development of quantum software, which requires fundamentally different techniques and approaches from conventional software.
QuSoft was launched by CWI, UvA and VU in December 2015 and builds on the institutions’ excellent track record in quantum computing and quantum information. Last December 2020 QuSoft celebrated its first lustrum. A one-month online event was organized in which the institute looked back to all great (research) highlights and also peaked into the revolutionary future of quantum technology. If you missed it, but still want to get to know the institute, you can watch the entire program back on our lustrum page by clicking here.
