The Quantum Leap Big Idea was formulated as a cross-NSF activity focused on advancing the development of quantum technologies. The “Triplets” approach is one of the activities funded under the Quantum Leap umbrella. This network is about development of a cohort of triplets, with each triplet comprising 1) University PI, 2) Industrial Partner and 3) Graduate Student, working together over a period of three years. All triplets will form a Quantum Information Science and Engineering Network (QISE-NET) which, guided by an Advisory Board, will organize the triplet selection process, and consecutive report-out meetings. This novel approach to integrating research, education and technology transfer is highly convergent and cross-cutting in nature, and is expected to include representative triplets from Materials Science, Chemistry, Device Engineering, Physics, and Industrial Research.
Second round proposal deadline: November 15, 2019
Expected notification date: January 10, 2020
