For a direct impact of Fundamental Research in Markets
Quantum technologies are complex
To facilitate the transition between fundamental research at the highest level and the quantum technology market, it is necessary to simultaneously combine an advanced vision of fundamental research (Basic Research), applied research (Application Oriented Research) as well as industrial development (Industrial R&D) in a highly interconnected and agile operation which should lead to the emergence of both ambitious research projects but also potential innovative application solutions that can lead to the creation of new companies or new product opportunities.
In disruptive technologies such as quantum technologies, innovation is often hampered either by the non-availability of technological solutions allowing rapid progress of science, or by the lack of scientific results helping to remove technological barriers. This is particularly true for quantum technologies where everything needs to be done both in terms of concepts and in terms of components.
"Innovation Hub" aggregating high-level fundamental research for the launch of highly differentiated products.
NaQuiDis will be a unique hub where research projects at the highest level will be jointly developed with application as well as technological solutions. This disruptive innovation hub will bring together internationally renowned scientists, director in charge of a well-identified activity in fundamental research or in research and development in interaction with industry.
These directors will be program managers who identify the potential synergies between the actors in Nouvelle Aquitaine and the efforts to be put to help the development. They will have the capacity to launch research and development operations - by assembling research teams that they will lead directly in the research unit that will host them - or to set up projects financed by NaQuiDis and developed by other teams in the Region (industrial or academic).Meet the team
