Additionally, Perimeter Institute's partnership with the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, which also received $50 M in today's announcement, is "…an unequivocal demonstration of the research potential and opportunity that exists in Waterloo Region and a strong endorsement of the global leadership position that the region has taken in the exciting new field of quantum information research" says Dr. Burton.
Perimeter Institute scientists push the limits of our understanding of physical laws and calculate new ideas about the very nature of space, time and matter. The Institute also provides a wide array of educational outreach activities for students, teachers and the general public to share the joy of scientific research and discovery.
