NSTC-led quantum Taiwan team meets Finland counterparts

The quantum Taiwan team led by National Science and Technology Council Deputy Minister Lin Minn-tsong met with a delegation from Finland May 7 in Taipei City, highlighting government plans for bilateral technology cooperation.
Led by Business Finland, the North European country’s government organization for innovation funding and investment, the group comprised quantum technology academics, experts and business representatives.
According to the NSTC, discussions focused on quantum computer development, ultra-low temperature cooling systems and industrial-grade quantum software. The aim of the BF visit is to further exchanges with Taiwan government and research institutions while deepening collaboration to jointly enhance advanced quantum technology industries, the council said.
Lin said that the quantum Taiwan team is working on general and optical quantum technology, as well as software and ways to integrate cross-field research and development. The council added that Finland plays a key role in the global quantum sector and is scheduled to develop 50-qubit computers by the end of 2024.
The NSTC said the visit followed Lin’s visit to Finland last June, after which academics and business representatives from the north European country came to Taiwan for a symposium, Quantum Taiwan 2023, in December. The council was invited to join the Inside Quantum Technology Nordics conference and exhibition set to be held in Helsinki in June 2024, it added. (YCH-E)
