Assessing the Needs of the Quantum Industry

  title={Assessing the Needs of the Quantum Industry},
  author={Ciaran Hughes and Doug Finke and Dan-Adrian German and Celia I. Merzbacher and Patrick M. Vora and Holly Lewandowski},
Quantum information science and technology (QIST) has progressed significantly in the last decade, such that it is no longer solely in the domain of research labs, but is now beginning to be developed for, and applied in, industrial applications and products. With the emergence of this new quantum industry, a new workforce trained in QIST skills and knowledge is needed. To help support education and training of this workforce, universities and colleges require knowledge of the type of jobs…
