Illinois, and specifically Chicago, was chosen to host two of five new National Quantum Information Science Research Centers, including a center led by Argonne National Laboratory and a center led by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. Each is projected to receive $115 million in funding over the next five years, and both are affiliated with the University of Chicago.

The centers, which the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy announced on August 26, are intended to support the National Quantum Initiative with transformational breakthroughs in quantum information science and related technology.

The University of Chicago manages Argonne for the Department of Energy through UChicago Argonne, LLC; and Fermilab together with the Universities Research Association, Inc.

“These scientific innovations of tomorrow are built on the investments of today, and with these two centers, Chicago is poised to lay a foundation of knowledge and technology for the future,” said Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
