The Center for Extensible Quantum Computing Technology Convergence Platform  at POSTECH was selected as a national project by the Ministry of Science and ICT for its ‘Leading Research Center Support Program’ in the area of engineering (ERC: Engineering Research Center). The director is Professor Sim Jae-yoon (EEE). The center will receive 13.5 billion KRW in government funding over the next seven years. In addition, Professor Cha Jae-choon (MATH) will also receive funding on his research on four-dimensional topology and knot theory as it was selected for the Research Leader Program under the nation’s Basic Research Program.

Through this designation, the Center for Extensible Quantum Computing Technology Convergence Platform will: build the nation’s first quantum computer; develop quantum computing technology; establish an industrial hub platform through cloud services; and nurture a core set of engineers specializing in quantum computing.

The quantum computer surpasses the calculation performance of the conventional supercomputer by millions of times using the principles of quantum mechanics. It can be used in virtually every industry including defense, science, medical, pharmaceutical, automobile, and aerospace.

The Research Leader Program, for which Professor Jae Choon Cha was selected, is the representative basic research program in Korea and aims to cultivate creative basic research abilities and deepen and develop research through individual research support. The program selects researchers of the highest caliber every year.
