NATO quantum technology centre to open in Denmark

NATO has selected Denmark to host a quantum technology centre, as part of the alliance’s Defense Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (DIANA). The centre will be based at the Niels Bohr Institute with contributions from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), the Aarhus University, and the Danish National Metrology Institute. The project will consist of two components: an accelerator (incubator) to provide training and mentoring for companies to develop solutions ready for commercial deployment, and a test centre and manufacturing unit composed of physical laboratories and testing facilities that could be involved in the development and testing of physical components for quantum sensors, quantum encryption units, or quantum computers.
