PRESS RELEASE — DistriQ – Quantum Innovation Zone, and iXcampus, a technology and university campus in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, have signed a 5-year agreement to facilitate the emergence of initiatives to detect, support and nurture talent and entrepreneurs in the quantum field.

Against a backdrop of intensifying international competition and the emergence of quantum technology in various forums, DistriQ and iXcampus decided to consolidate their strategy around three objectives: the search for market outlets for French and Canadian companies, the attraction of talent and technological complementarity, and a growth strategy. The two partners have agreed to carry out a number of joint actions and projects, including: the organization of events with industrialists in the quantum field, to help identify technological barriers and the emergence of new technological players; the creation of a joint entrepreneurial support program in the quantum field, and the establishment of an international prize at the end of the program; the provision of technical platforms and entrepreneurs in residence as part of the joint program; and the creation of an executive and continuing education program on innovation and quantum.

Clara Doly-Tacconi, Director of Development and Partnerships, is delighted with the agreement: “The complementary nature of our two ecosystems is obvious. This will enable us to consolidate an operational development axis to foster the emergence of quantum innovation and talent. Our collective efforts will help to raise the profile of our two regions in the race for quantum technologies”.

“This partnership with IXcampus will enable us to make a real and undeniable impact on our respective ecosystems, while creating distinctive value,” emphasizes Richard St-Pierre, Managing Director of DistriQ – Quantum Innovation Zone.
