Two of the worlds leading research institutes have joined forced to create a Quantum Hub. ETH Zurich and the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) have established a joint centre for the development of quantum computers. The remit of the new organisation is to develop and advance Quantum computing based around two technologies: Ion Trap and Superconducting qubits.

ETH Zurich and the Paul Scherrer Institute in Villigen are opening the “ETH Zurich – PSI Quantum Computing Hub”. Over thirty scientists will work at the new centre directed by ETH professors Andreas Wallraff and Jonathan Home. ETH Zurich has provided over 30 million francs for the new venture. Located in the Swiss canton of Aargau, an existing building was converted to cater for research on quantum computers.

The cooperation with PSI will enable ETH to further expand its leading position in the field of quantum-​computing engineering
