Two New Research Groups at Nordita Funded by Strategic Research Grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation

Left to right: Astrid Söderbergh Widding, Thors Hans Hansson, Frank Wilczek, John Wettlaufer, Niels Obers, Anders Karlhede and Jan Conrad.

The program, announced at the end of 2019, has been described as "Computation for physics, physics for computation", and will allow Nordita to set up two internationally competitive research groups in the broader fields of Quantum Information, and Complex Dynamical Networks. The application was spearheaded by the collective efforts of Frank Wilczek, John Wettlaufer, Anders Karlhede and Hans Hansson, and strongly supported by the Stockholm University leadership.

The six year grant, dubbed "WINQ" (Wallenberg Initiative for Networks and Quanta), is for 95 MSEK, with a possibility to be prolonged another 4 years with 80 MSEK, totalling 175 MSEK. It will strengthen the strategic contributions already made by the Foundation in the fields of artificial intelligence (WASP) and quantum technology (WAQCT).
