The Chicago Quantum Exchange is an intellectual hub and community of researchers with the common goal of advancing academic and industrial efforts in the science and engineering of quantum information. The hub promotes the exploration of quantum information technologies and the development of new applications. The Chicago Quantum Exchange facilitates interactions between research groups of its member and partner institutions and provides an avenue for developing and fostering collaborations, joint projects, and information exchange. 

Headquartered at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering, the Chicago Quantum Exchange is a partnership between the University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Northwestern University. It brings together more than 100 researchers from across the Midwest, and is home to one of the largest collaborative teams working on quantum science in the world.

The Chicago Quantum Exchange also has seven industry partners — IBM, Boeing, Applied Materials, Inc., ColdQuanta, Inc., HRL Laboratories LLC, Quantum Opus LLC, and Rigetti Computing — that enable industry-academic collaborations and provide opportunities to the next generation of quantum scientists and engineers.
