QNRC Pillars



capacity development

Quantum Networking 
Research Consortium


Quantum Communications Research

  • To enable joint cross-cutting public-private synergism in sensor development, secure communications, distributed computing and yet to be discovered use case applications.
  • To establish an open, non-proprietary, environment for test and evaluation of concepts, components, network protocols, architectures and metrology developed both within and eventually beyond the member agencies

Quantum Information Science & Technolgy Education (QISTEd)

  • To facilitate the curation, expansion, and adaptation of Quantum Information System (QIS) educational fundamentals for students across computer science, mathematics, physics, and chemistry, as well as broader public audiences. 
  • Quantum Capacity Development 

    • To assess the overall market for QIST talent, and understand what skills are most in demand. 
    • To conduct studies of job roles that are adjacent to, but critical for, QIST, studies of end users and early adopters of QIST, and analyses of key positions in facilities and supply chain industries that enable QIST R&D.
    • To promote the inclusion, participation, retention, and career outcomes of people from historically underrepresented backgrounds in STEM fields
    • To provide guidance that may be used to align curricula and training experiences with the current and anticipated needs of the QIST economy.
