Alberta Premier Jason Kenney announced that the Canadian province is investing C$23 million (US$17.9 million) in the University of Calgary (U of C) Quantum City hub.

The center will be the focus of a multi-institutional partnership that includes all polytechnic schools in Calgary, as well as global technology company Mphasis and the universities of Calgary, Alberta, and Lethbridge.

U of C's Ed McCauley said Quantum City will help fuel research in quantum technologies in Alberta, and foster local talent to fill positions that are expected to be created in the coming years.

Said McCauley, "We hope companies like Mphasis and other companies around the world will take up support in the area around building up fabrication facilities where we can collaborate with industry to prototype, scale, and test those devices."
