Through our research and development, we want to discover and create the technology on which quantum computations will be run 20 years from now.

The global quantum computing research agenda is to create a universal quantum computer that is demonstrably scalable and which also achieves a demonstrable quantum advantage over classical computers.  The intelligent way of building a response to that challenge is set out in the figure below:

UBC has an exceptional record in quantum computing theory, and this is important because ultimately, breakthrough theory is a driver of quantum hardware strategies and, indeed the attendant engineering and algorithmic layer.
