We’d love to highlight some of the incredible work done by the European Organization for Nuclear Research's (CERN) Quantum Technology Initiative (QTI) over the past year.
In 2022, CERN and other quantum leaders announced they would work together to create the Open Quantum Institute (OPI).
This proposal was finalized in October 2023 when OPI launched its three-year pilot phase, making “quantum computing resources and technical expertise available to projects designed to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.”

We're excited to see the world's leading researchers and technology companies embrace quantum computing as a force for good. This transformative technology can enable more sustainable development practices and resource consumption, helping nations meet greenhouse gas emissions goals and protect energy grids from extreme weather events brought on by climate change.
OQI will be fully integrated into CERN’s broader initiatives by March 1, 2024.
Read QTI’s announcement to learn how the organization and private-sector participants will help ensure that quantum technology has the “widest possible societal impact.”
