Focusing Expertise - Shaping the Future
In the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA), RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich pool their outstanding expertise in five research sections, a JARA-Center and four JARA-Instituts.These common efforts open up new research opportunities and facilitate projects that would not be attainable for either of the partners on their own. Furthermore, their attention is always focused on the grand challenges facing society.


The JARA partners Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University, in collaboration with the Leibniz Institute for Innovative Microelectronics (IHP), are pooling their complementary expertise in the field of semiconductor and quantum technology. In the future, they want to work together on the development of scalable semiconductor quantum bits within the framework of an open-ended cooperation, which will make quantum computers with millions of qubits possible.
