The future of quantum technology relies on the strength of its workforce. Through education, outreach, partnerships and professional development opportunities, we empower the next generation of experts in harnessing quantum technology to solve humanity’s most persistent challenges. As the demand for quantum professionals grows, we aim to cultivate skilled talent and shape new roles.

The Quantum Collaborative identifies, seeds and enhances collaboration among a wide variety of disciplines, including scientific fields (electrical engineering, physics, materials, computer science, data science, etc.) and humanistic studies (library sciences, social media, policy, societal impacts and many other areas that may not traditionally be associated with quantum technologies). Capitalizing on our connections with leading universities, state-of-the-art industry and flagship national laboratories, the Quantum Collaborative is uniquely positioned to educate learners of all levels with valuable knowledge that will provide opportunities to explore exciting new directions for future applications and improve the current state of quantum technologies.
