BioInnovation Institute (BII), an international non-profit foundation incubating and accelerating life science research, has launched a new deep tech accelerator start-up programme, the Deep Tech Lab – Quantum, to propel emergent and disruptive quantum science and biotechnology solutions toward the marketplace.
Deep tech and quantum science have received significant attention from governmental organisations, universities, and investors for their potential to play a role in tackling significant societal challenges. To unlock the potential in quantum science through start-up innovation, the Danish Government has appointed the BII to create and run a new deep tech start-up accelerator.
As part of Denmark’s innovation ecosystem in quantum science, the accelerator will act as an important step in fostering the most impactful technological solutions developed by the best and brightest innovators.
Jens Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer of BioInnovation Institute, said: “We are proud to have been appointed by the Danish government to drive the new quantum accelerator in collaboration with strong players in the science ecosystem. We truly believe this initiative is a big step forward in further exploiting the commercial potential that quantum science holds. BII offers a strong platform to bring groundbreaking life sciences research and innovative ideas to the market.”
BII is set to maintain its close collaboration with The Novo Nordisk Foundation, which recently announced funding to develop Denmark’s first fully operational quantum computer.
