The National Science Foundation supported the establishment of three institutes that aim to bolster research and development in quantum information science, Fedscoop reported Friday.

Denise Caldwell, NSF's division director for physics, told reporters that the Quantum Leap Challenge Institutes would address the need for a network that reliably facilitates communication between quantum computers.

NSF invested $75 million in the university-led institutes, established in July, that will tackle challenges in the areas of high-fidelity networks and quantum sensing. The institutes will also work to help the government build a quantum technology workforce.
