The Founders’ Association of the Council for New Industry Creation through Quantum Technology has rebranded the association name as Quantum Strategic Industry Alliance for Revolution: Q-STAR.
Formed of 24 companies, the association formally established the council under a new name at their general meeting.
The quantum age is now approaching and expectations are growing worldwide for the realization of safe, secure lifestyles and a better society.
Japan aims to position itself as a quantum technology innovation-oriented nation, and to create new industries through services that leverage its strengths in materials, devices, measuring technologies, computers and communications, simulations and other technologies.
Q-STAR will contribute to this with global leadership in the promotion of activities that advance science and technology in this new era, and by promoting Japanese industry and strengthening international competitiveness.
Q-STAR will invite the participation of diverse industries that support its objectives and initiatives and will collaborate with industry, academia, and government in promoting initiatives that apply new technologies and establishing related technology platforms.
Q-STAR’s concerns include reassessments of basic principles and laws related to quantum technology, carrying out surveys and making recommendations on its applicability and necessary industrial structures, systems, rules, etc.
Q-STAR will also aim to establish a globally recognized platform that will promote collaboration with other organizations around the world working in quantum technology.
