InstituteQ – The Finnish Quantum Institute
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.

The development of the field is clearly hindered by shortage of experts, that's why it is important to organise national education
Top research, events and infrastructures
InstituteQ carries out and coordinates globally top-level research in fundamental quantum science and technology. InstituteQ also aims to broaden the impact of quantum technology in industry and business in Finland.
The national Quantum Technology Finland (QTF) Centre of Excellence brings together scientific and technological excellence and cutting-edge research infrastructures to harness quantum phenomena in solid-state-based quantum devices and applications.
Aalto Quantum Physics seminars are hosted at the Department of Applied Physics at Aalto University, and feature both local and international speakers on a variety of topics in quantum physics.
