What is Quantum Information Research Center?

 We will strive to build an environment where talented researchers in quantum information and related fields from Yokohama National University and elsewhere can gather, exchange information, create ideas on a day-to-day basis, and persistently launch high-value joint research projects in a timely manner. This Center was founded as a global research center to promote practical research and to build a reputation for carrying out world-class, large-scale research projects by participating as a core organization in national projects and joint international projects.
