State of Lower Saxony funds high-tech incubator to support start-ups in the field of quantum technologies

Whether in computing, sensor technology, or cryptography – the possibilities for using quantum processes for groundbreaking technological innovations are promising. Efforts in basic research are intensive. And no less so are the approaches to turn all these technological promises into practical applications. The Quantum Valley Lower Saxony (QVLS), the joint quantum technological competences in Lower Saxony, already stands for this path to practical application: With a so-called high-tech incubator, the foundation of start-ups that focus on quantum technologies is to be substantially supported. The state of Lower Saxony is funding this special high-tech incubator with 4.7 million euros. The corresponding funding decision was handed over to the project managers at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt on 5 July 2022 by Stefan Muhle, State Secretary in the Lower Saxony Ministry of Economics, Labour, Transport and Digitalisation.
