PHOENIX — Arizona State University is investing in advanced quantum technology, announcing Tuesday a new research collaborative initiative.

The Quantum Collaborative aims to impact society and the American economy with new discoveries and applications in the field.

It also hopes to promote understanding of the technology and create partnerships for advancements.

“A key objective for ASU’s Knowledge Enterprise is to fundamentally change how the world solves problems,” Sally C. Morton, executive vice president of the ASU Knowledge Enterprise, said in a press release.

“Quantum technology holds a unique promise to accomplish this, and I am thrilled to see what we can accomplish with our partners in the Quantum Collaborative.”

ASU will operate as a hub in IBM’s Quantum Network, which is made up of a global community of Fortune 500 companies, academic institutions, startups and national labs. They will have cloud access to IBM’s premium quantum computers, experts and resources.

Organizations can join the ASU hub as members and can use IBM’s quantum technology and resources to advance quantum computing research.

The initiative’s industry partners are Quantinuum, Google AI, SandboxAQ and CR8DL.

Academic partners are Purdue University, Tecnológico de Monterrey, The University of Texas at San Antonio and Virginia Tech
