CU Boulder Awards Quantum Seed Grant to Resilient Entanglement

CU Boulder Logo

Resilient Entanglement (RE) is thrilled to announce that we have been selected as one of seven winners of the 2023-2024 Translational Quantum Research Grant.


RE will use this grant to continue our research into Translating Quantum Contingency Analysis from Lab to the Field. We also look forward to launching a commercialized version of our Quantum Energy Management System, which will help energy providers deliver electricity with the highest level of security, sustainability, and resiliency.


Massimo Ruzzene, Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation at UC Boulder said “The goal of these seed grants is to help researchers accelerate their discoveries towards commercialization. The success of quantum translation, of which these grants are part, also has important implications for our national economy and national security.”


This solution will help our nation reach 100% renewable energy integration into the grid and protect against devastating extreme weather events, while ensuring the lowest cost and eliminating load interruptions.


This grant was created with funds from the Colorado Economic Development Commission and administered by the Research & Innovation Office at the University of Colorado Boulder.


Let us also extend a heartfelt thank you to the Qubit Quantum Initiative at UC Boulder and the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) for their continuous support of RE. Their assistance has been critical in enabling RE to build innovative quantum software solutions that helps strengthen Colorado’s position as a leading hub for quantum science and technology research, which has already produced four Nobel Prize winners in physics in the field of quantum technology.


Executive Director of OEDIT Eve Lieberman says “The seed grants announced today are an important step to connect quantum discoveries in the lab to the commercial sector, continuing our state’s leadership in this important new technology and supporting the creation of new businesses and new jobs.”
