The organizers of the QCNorway workshop have written a position paper with recommendations for an emerging Norwegian quantum strategy, with quantum computing as a key component. Published on June 8th, Contributions Towards a Norwegian Quantum Computing Strategy is now available for download in English with the complimentary Norwegian version available later this month.

Computing and computer science serve as the meeting point for the authors of this paper, despite their different scientific backgrounds, and is based on presentations and discussions at and after the open workshop QCNorway: Towards a Norwegian Quantum Computing Strategy held in Oslo on November 7–8, 2022

The authors are as follows:

  • Magnus Bruaset and Shaukat Ali (Simula Research Laboratory)
  • André Brodtkorb, Sergiy Denysov and Sølve Selstø (Oslo Metropolitan University)
  • Gunnar Bøe (Sigma2)

At present, there is no national strategy or corresponding investments for developing Norway’s expertise in quantum computing through education, research, and business creation. Because of this, the country faces an immediate threat of being late to the party for a technology race that could redefine the digital society and digital business development given the enormous momentum in quantum computing and quantum technology worldwide and in neighbouring countries.

This paper seems to be the realization of that threat and is a call to action of sorts for the quantum future of the country.
