Rome Lab Named To Quantum Economic Development Consortium
Senator Charles Schumer says following a years-long push, the Air Force Research Lab in Rome will be the Department of Defense’s leading representative on the Quantum Economic Development Consortium.
The QED-C was created by the National Quantum Initiative Act, which was signed into law in 2018.
QED-C has just under 100 member organizations, spanning from large corporate entities to schools and academic institutions to start-up companies.
Their goal is to combine public and private expertise to advance the quantum computing industry in the U.S.
Schumer says Rome Lab's research capabilities and expertise will play a critical role in developing future innovation in the emerging field.
