Sector news


There is an international race to build a scalable, quantum computer that transcends the capacity of conventional computers. A technology that has the potential to transform the information economy and create the industries of the future – solving complex solutions in hours or minutes.

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology is focused on delivering world-leading quantum research to develop full-scale quantum systems – encompassing ultra-fast quantum computation, secure quantum communication and distributed quantum information processing.

Led by Laureate Fellow and 2018 Australian of the Year Professor Michelle Simmons, CQC²T is an international collaboration between seven Australian universities and more than 25 partners to form one of the largest combined efforts in quantum computation and communication research in the world. CQC²T is funded by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council Centres of Excellence funding scheme.
