For a direct impact of Fundamental Research in Markets
Quantum technology is complex
To facilitate the transition between fundamental research at the highest level and the quantum technology market, we must combine an advanced vision of fundamental research (also known as basic research), application-oriented research and industrial R&D into a highly interconnected, agile operation. This should lead to the emergence of both ambitious research projects and potential innovative application solutions that can lead to new companies or new product opportunities.
In disruptive technologies such as quantum technology, innovation is often hampered either by the unavailability of technological solutions which would allow science to advance rapidly, or by the lack of scientific results which would help to remove technological barriers. This is particularly true for quantum technology, as everything, from the concepts to the components, need to be created from square one.
From an ‘innovation hub’ combining high-level fundamental research and application development to a ‘start-up studio’ for quantum technology.
Naquidis is a unique hub where research projects at the highest level are jointly developed with their applications and technological solutions. More concretely, this disruptive innovation hub will bring together internationally renowned scientists and directors in charge of a clearly identified activity in fundamental research or in R&D with industry.
These directors will be programme managers who identify the potential synergies between players in Nouvelle-Aquitaine and what should be done to boost their development. They will have the capacity to launch R&D operations – either by assembling research teams that they head up directly at the host research unit, or by setting up projects financed by Naquidis and developed by other industrial or academic teams in the Region.Meet the team
