Our research group designs software for the computing technology of the future, especially quantum computing. Based on the laws of quantum mechanics, which tell us that systems and particles can be in multiple states at once, quantum computing is radically different from computing as we know it. Our quantum software requires fundamentally different techniques and approaches based on superposition, interference and entanglement. Ultimately, our research will result in better, faster and more reliable computer systems for society. Our research group is involved in QuSoft, the new Dutch research centre for quantum software.




Business Developer Quantum.Amsterdam

Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) heeft een vacature voor een Business Developer Quantum.Amsterdam (0,8 fte) ( is een bruisende, innovatieve omgeving in het hart van het Amsterdam Science Park, met als basis de grote expertise op het gebied van quantumalgoritmes, protocollen en software bij QuSoft (, quantum optimalisatie, post quantum crypto (CWI) en van quantum sensing, quantum simulation en quantum materialen bij de Quantum Labs van UvA en andere kennispartners. Het is een netwerkomgeving en ecosysteem, waar kennisinstellingen, bedrijven en maatschappelijke organisaties elkaar vinden om zich samen voor te bereiden op de komst van quantumtechnologie en wat deze technologie betekent voor maatschappij en bedrijfsleven. In Quantum.Amsterdam, kijken partijen vooruit naar toekomstige praktische toepassingen en vertalen kennis naar zinvolle applicaties. Quantum.Amsterdam is één van de vijf innovatiehubs in de Quantum Delta Nederland (

Join WIQD's first networking event of 2021, featuring presentations, discussions, and networking opportunities for women in quantum development.

WIQD (Women In Quantum Development) is a professional network for quantum technology enthusiasts from industry, academia and policy. Our mission is to bring together women in quantum in the Netherlands, and beyond, for support, networking, and community growth.

We will start the session with an introduction, followed by a presentation about the communication channels of WIQD and how you can actively contribute to WIQD's program. Next up, there is a chance to network with other women in quantum development by joining our speed networking round and discussion round.

3.00 pm – 3.10 pm Introduction
3.10 pm – 3.25 pm Presentation about the communication channels of WIQD and how you can actively contribute to WIQD’s program
3.25 pm – 4.00 pm Speed networking round – Which quantum developments are you most looking forward to in 2021?
4.00 pm – 4.25 pm Breakout rooms – How would you rate your current working environment in terms of inclusivity?
4.25 pm – 4.30 pm Closing

Please the WIQD website for more details and registration.
