Brief Introduction of BAQIS:

BAQIS was established on December 24, 2017. It is an innovative research institution initiated by Beijing Municipal Government and co-founded with China's top universities and research institutions such as Tsinghua University, Peking University, Chinese Academy of Sciences, etc.

Aiming at building a world-class research institution, BAQIS adopts an operating mechanism in line with international standards, coordinates all partners with their distinct and favorable resources, and vigorously introduces the world's top talent.

BAQIS endeavors to address major fundamental issues of quantum physics and quantum information research to push forward next-generation quantum science and technology advancement. BAQIS encompasses four major research fields: quantum state of matter, quantum materials and devices, quantum computation and communication, and quantum precision measurement. In the meantime, it has developed two state-of-the-art experimental platforms to support the researches, i.e. the micro-nano processing platform and the synergetic testing platform.

To tackle the grand challenges in quantum science and technology, we are making every effort to bring together excellent researchers of all levels in a dynamic and inspiring environment. In BAQIS, Principal Investigators (PIs) enjoy the freedom of making independent decisions – from the selection of research topics, recruitment of team members, to budgeting and implementing research within the frame of designated fund. We have also implemented joint-appointment allowing researchers from collaborating institutions to take partial or full responsibility for the research projects funded by BAQIS. This has enabled researchers to benefit from multiple platforms and resources for their research, and also helped to consolidate talent around the major research projects which require concerted efforts of distinct expertise. 

In addition, BAQIS is building up several distinctive brands for its academic exchanges and international collaboration, e.g. the "Baiwang Forum", and QPQIS (International Symposium on Quantum Physics and Quantum Information Sciences). "Baiwang Forum" is a high-end lecture series, inviting internationally renowned scientists to present their most recent progresses in quantum research in a timely manner. QPQIS is an international conference series with an aim at discussing the frontier issues of quantum physics and quantum information sciences, as well as the cutting-edge quantum technologies. Many internationally renowned scientists from various countries including US, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, etc. have been invited to talk at “Beiwang Forum”, QPQIS, and other international conferences hosted by BAQIS.

BAQIS is a young and vital research institution, with most researchers in their thirties. We strive to foster an atmosphere of creativity by encouraging risk-taking, collaboration and efficacy.  Thank you all for joining and supporting BAQIS to conduct pioneering research that may help shape the quantum future for a better world!
