Quantum @ICFO

ICFO researchers are at the forefront of a growing scientific community that is working to understand and harness the power of quantum phenomena in order to usher in revolutionary new quantum technologies and applications.

Made @ICFO.

As in the timeline outlined in the Quantum Manifesto, we classify ICFO’s research in 3 stages, according to where current work stands in terms of time to market, when it is expected to provide solutions for many of today’s societal challenges.

Groups involved.

Over half of ICFO’s research groups are participating in research projects related to quantum technologies.


ICFO receives funding from a wide range of institutions. Thanks to their support, we are working to usher in future Quantum technologies.
