Quantum Business Opportunity in US

USA is currently leading quantum technology revolution with significant contributions to research, investments, and private sector development and it continues to harness quantum computing’s potential in various sectors.

The Quantum Computing innovation and trade mission to US is a great chance to explore the research market, build local networks and create further cooperation with the United States.
