Quantum Information Science and Technology Seed Grant Award Winners

In the Spring 2020 semester, the Office of the Vice President for Research announced a special initiative seed funding program to foster inter-institutional collaborations on Quantum Information Science and Technology (QIST) research. The program was designed to provide  seed  funds to projects with the potential to evolve into statewide research networks. Interested faculty were asked to submit brief proposals that included a project description, explanation of partnerships, budget justification, and targeted external funding opportunities. The following winners were announced on May 27, 2020.
