About QUTE.sk

Who We Are?

The National Center for Quantum Technologies (QUTE.sk) is an interest association of legal persons that was established in November 2021 for the purpose of supporting and developing research, development, implementation and application of quantum technologies in the Slovak Republic. 

The founding members were the Ministry of Investments, Regional Development and Informatization of the Slovak Republic and the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic. In 2022, the Association became members of the Institute of Physics SAS,  and the National Security Authority of the Slovak Republic.


Our mission at QUTE.sk is to serve as the central coordination and support hub for advancing research and education in quantum technologies throughout Slovakia. We aim to foster collaboration among academic, private, non-profit, and governmental sectors to develop quantum technology systems, networks, and infrastructure. Our goal is to bring new opportunities and financial resources to further quantum research and innovation.

Our vision at QUTE.sk is to establish Slovakia as a leading player in the field of quantum technologies. We aspire to create a vibrant ecosystem that connects researchers, industry partners, and policymakers, driving advancements in quantum technologies and contributing to global scientific progress and technological innovation. Through our efforts, we envision a world where Slovakia’s contributions to quantum advancements are globally recognized and celebrated.

At QUTE.sk, we are driven by a commitment to excellence, collaboration, and societal impact. We believe in the transformative potential of quantum technologies to address complex challenges and drive positive change. To unlock new possibilities in this rapidly evolving field we build on the power of interdisciplinary cooperation and knowledge sharing. Our philosophy emphasizes inclusivity, transparency, and integrity in all our activities, fostering a culture of innovation, learning, and responsible stewardship of knowledge to inspire groundbreaking discoveries and propel Slovakia to the forefront of quantum research and development.

At QUTE.sk we prioritize facilitating collaboration among research teams and fostering partnerships with national and international consortia to access new opportunities and resources. We are committed to supporting the establishment and enhancement of quantum technology infrastructure to facilitate research and development activities. Additionally, we invest in educational initiatives and talent development to cultivate the next generation of quantum experts and innovators.
