In conjunction with DC CyberWeek, Hudson Institute’s Quantum Alliance Initiative hosted a public event to explore Canada's Quantum Valley, a high-tech ecosystem clustered around the University of Waterloo, Ontario. Mike Lazaridis, co-founder of Blackberry, provided keynote remarks describing how Canadian academics, investors, and industry work closely to develop and commercialize quantum technology. Iain Stewart, President of the National Research Council of Canada, also delivered an address for the event.

In partnership with ISARA and the Canadian Embassy, and moderated by Dr. Arthur Herman, Hudson Senior Fellow and director of Hudson’s Quantum Alliance Initiative, leading experts from business, government, and academia discussed the unique processes and best practices of Quantum Valley, in order to derive lessons that the U.S. can apply to its own quantum sector.
