Rosatom enterprise became a resident of Skolkovo innovation cluster

The joint venture "Quantum Technologies" (JV "Kvant"), which is a part of Rosatom, became a resident of the Skolkovo Innovation Center. The press service of the state corporation informed "Made in Russia" about it.

"The creation of a quantum computer is the main expected breakthrough in the digital sphere. To solve this task within the approved roadmap for the development of quantum computing, "Rosatom" not only unites the efforts of representatives of scientific, educational, technological and business communities, but also relies on the resources of the system formed in our country to support innovation. I am sure that the use of infrastructural capabilities and specialized support tools concentrated in Skolkovo will give additional acceleration to the ambitious project aimed at creating a domestic quantum computer and entering Russia into the number of the absolute leaders of the global quantum race," said Ekaterina Solntseva, Director for Digitization of Rosatom State Corporation.

The status of the resident will allow the company not only to receive tax and customs privileges, but also to strengthen cooperation with "Skolkovo" and its residents. The general director of "JV "Kvant", the head of the project office on quantum technologies "Rosatom" Ruslan Yunusov noted that this consolidation will promote "both development of fundamental science and start of the first large-scale pilot projects in the field of quantum calculations".

ROSATOM is a global multi-technology holding company that unites assets in the energy, engineering and construction sectors. It includes 400 enterprises and organizations, which employ 275 thousand people.

"JV "Kvant" is the leader of the technological consortium National Quantum Laboratory (NQL), established in November 2020. NCL's main objective is to bring together key players in the field of quantum technologies: universities, research centers, technology companies, financial organizations and startups in the development of quantum computers. In 2024, the consortium members will unveil home-grown quantum processors on multiple platforms - superconductors, ions, atoms and photons - as well as dedicated cloud software for remote access to quantum computers.
