VIDEO: Maastricht University to enter quantum computing collaboration with IBM

7 October 2020

Maastricht University will become the first Dutch university to enter the IBM Q Network, a community of Fortune 500 companies, academic institutions, startups and national research labs working with IBM to advance quantum computing. The IBM-UM academic collaboration will focus on addressing the computational needs of the future Einstein Telescope and the LHCb detector at the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

In the video below, Nikhef researchers Dr. Gideon Koekoek and Dr. Jacco de Vries (both from the research group Gravitational Waves & Fundamental Physics) explain why the coming years are exciting for physics and what challenges this entails.
