Sydney Quantum Academy gets ready for 2020 launch (via Qpute.com)

The Sydney Quantum Academy (SQA) had a soft launch at the Sydney Startup Hub earlier this month for its inaugural PhD scholarships, postdoctoral fellowships and visiting fellowships.

In March, the NSW government announced the support for an academy through $15.4 million in funding for it. This came a year after it invested $500,000 on the development of a proposal for the academy.

The academy aims to catalyse the development of a quantum economy. It is a collaboration of four NSW universities – University of Sydney, University of NSW, Macquarie University and the University of Technology Sydney – which will put in another $20 million to support SQA.

SQA is not set to officially launch until “later in 2020” and is still in negotiations with a “major property partner” for a headquarters location, a spokesperson said.

A spokesperson for the academy told Computerworld that “it will be in a central Sydney location, close to major transport links and accessible for all four universities”.
