Daniel Filmus, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, attended with Juan Pablo Paz, Secretary for Scientific and Technological Coordination, and Marcos Saraceno, coordinator of the Interagency Program Advisory Council to Empower Quantum Science and Technology. Ceremonial delivery of the document prepared by the Advisory Board, which will serve as a key input to the Ministry of Science’s policy determination to strengthen the field. Serge Haroche, winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics, was also present.
At the opening of the meeting, Filmus thanked the Council for handing over the document “which will allow us to develop better policies to strengthen the Strategic areas for the future Programme”. It is crucial that we are able to strengthen the work of our research groups, develop new areas of research, and support the transfer of these developments to the productive sector. With the program, we also aim to train professionals at the highest level.”
“We are in the so-called ‘second quantum revolution’, which is based on the use of the quantum properties of matter and light and allows for the development of next-generation sensors and devices for storage, transmission and storage,” the Minister of Science said. information processing. information. It is an important knowledge area of the future”.
The document analyzes the degree of development of different branches of applied research in quantum technologies in the country and around the world. In addition, a number of concrete actions have been proposed to achieve the following goals for the year 2025, which is proposed as the International Year of Quantum Sciences and Technologies:
1. Quantum Communication: It has the first quantum secure network to connect academic, government and defense organizations in AMBA.
2. Metrology and sensors: development of optical and solid state sensors based on quantum effect, optical clocks, development of algorithms and devices in nuclear magnetic resonance.
3. Simulation and quantum computing: development of simulators based on cold ions and light liquids. Development of the first superconducting Qubits. Development of processing algorithms and quantum information.
4. Training and training of human resources: To significantly increase the number of postgraduate students in the region. Design and presentation of undergraduate and graduate courses; quantum programming courses in the cloud and workshops in primary and secondary schools across the country.
About the National Research and Development Program in Quantum Science and Technology
In June 2022, the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation defined the creation of the Interagency Program to Strengthen Quantum Science and Technology under the Scientific and Technological Articulation Secretariat. For this purpose, researchers in the field of science and quantum technologies, representatives of four scientific and technological institutions in our country such as CONICET, CNEA, INTI, CITEDEF; It was carried out with the participation of researchers working at National Universities such as UBA, UNSAM and UNC.
The program aims to strengthen the region and ensure the sustainable growth of this technological activity in the country. For this, it is necessary to establish a synergetic relationship between different areas, groups and institutions, and to create both facilities and common areas. Added to the instrumentation of specific investments subject to defined goals and measurable milestones, this will allow for the transformation of this space in Argentina, leveraging existing human resources at SNCTI, expanding its volume and strengthening its capacities to allow for developments. creates significant changes in society.
