Congressional Activity on the Development of Quantum Computer Technology
February 15, 2024
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET

Please join Holland & Knight's Quantum Computing Team for a discussion of important congressional activity directed at the development of quantum computer technology.

The National Quantum Initiative (NQI) is the U.S. federal effort to coordinate and accelerate civilian quantum research, development and commercialization, codified in the 2018 National Quantum Initiative Act. The act created a National Quantum Coordination Office at the White House and tasked the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), National Science Foundation (NSF) and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) with a variety of activities to enhance the nation's capacity for quantum research and development (R&D). More than five years later, Congress is working to reauthorize the NQI to provide direction and support for five additional years of quantum R&D and commercialization.

Our discussion featuring Partners Paul Stimer and Robert Hill will begin with a concise, level-setting introduction to quantum computers for a general audience. We will then examine the NQI, what the reauthorization bill and other relevant legislation is likely to include, priorities of the U.S. quantum industry and other stakeholders, and international competition.

We hope you can join us for this highly informative presentation.
