The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark announces:

“Denmark has been selected as the location for the new NATO Center for Quantum Technologies.

The new NATO Center for Quantum Technologies will be anchored at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. The Center will include an accelerator site and incubator where companies can mature their technology and bring it to the market with sparring and input from world-leading scientists from Danish universities. The Center will also host a test center facility and laboratory where quantum technology can be developed and tested, including components in quantum sensors, quantum encryption devices, and quantum computers. The new center is part of NATO’s Defense Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (DIANA). DIANA aims to keep the NATO country’s technological edge by promoting new and disruptive technologies in the alliance.

Denmark is home to a vibrant and innovative quantum ecosystem built on the legacy of Niels Bohr’s discoveries and the team of leading physicists he brought together in Copenhagen in the 1920s. In the collaborative spirit of Niels Bohr, the Danish application to NATO was developed in close cooperation between several ministries, universities, business associations, and the Danish Quantum Community. Companies from the NATO countries that will participate in the accelerator and test site will benefit from the open, innovative, and collaborative spirit in the Danish Quantum ecosystem.”
