Building a quantum-ready society

The goal at InstituteQ is to raise the readiness of Finnish society for the disruptive potential and implications quantum technologies will have for society and the economy at large.

By 2026, novel educational programs, growing quantum industry and eminent research directions are in motion.

The efforts of InstituteQ facilitate fundamental scientific findings, adoption of novel technologies and development of new commercial opportunities.

The aim is to carry, implement and mutually benefit from front line education, research, innovations, and infrastructures.

Interested in quantum studies - see our programmes!

Come study Quantum Technology at Aalto University. We offer education in both Bachelor's and Master's levels, and several special courses.
