Time to understand and grasp the potential

Quantum Technology will change our future

Like digital technology revolutionized our society quantum technology offers the possibility to develop sensors, computers and communication systems that are exponentially more powerful than current systems. This will change companies, entire industries and the world by solving problems and create solutions that seem impossible today. The time to understand and grasp the potential for
technical applications is now. WACQT-IP is established to assist early-stage commercialisation actions from the research programme WACQT.

What is WACQT-IP?

WACQT-IP AB shall protect early technology steps in quantum technology via patenting by
• building up a patent portfolio in quantum technology
• commercialisation via spin-off companies
• licensing and divestments

We are a company established by researcher’s interest in utilising the intellectual assets created by the research programmes, and with capital from Chalmers Holding AB and Navigare Ventures AB.
Quantum technologies are a set of emerging technologies that use the principles of quantum mechanics to perform tasks that are impossible or impractical with today. Quantum technologies will offer major breakthroughs in areas as heavy and complex computations and simulations, secure communication, new imaging and sensing technologies. 

According to McKinsey & Company (2022) investors also see these possibilities: Funding of start-ups focused on quantum technologies more than doubled to $1.4 billion in 2021 from 2020. Quantum computing now has the potential to capture nearly $700 billion in value as early as 2035, with that market estimated to exceed $90 billion annually by 2040. By capturing only a fraction of these commercial possibilities, we hope to strengthen the possibilities for a new business opportunities in Sweden that will help create values for the society.

Who owns WACQT-IP?

More about
Quantum Physics
Quantum mechanics is a fundamental theory in physics that provides a description of the physical properties of nature at the scale of atoms and subatomic particles. It is the foundation of all quantum physics including quantum chemistry, quantum field theory, quantum technology, and quantum information science.
