News and Events

12-20-22 |Professor William Oliver was appointed to the National Quantum Initiative Advisory Committee (NQIAC) On December 9, 2022. President Biden appointed Professor William D. Oliver to the National Quantum Initiative Advisory Committee (NQIAC), 1 of 15 members who will provide advice to the Biden-Harris Administration and help maintain US leadership in quantum information science (QIS).  President Biden enhanced NQIAC through an Executive Order, which elevated the committee to a presidential advisory committee, highlighting that the National Quantum Initiative is a whole-of-government effort that rises above any one Federal agency. The members of NQIAC include distinguished individuals from industry, universities, Federal laboratories, and other Federal Government agencies who are prominent in their fields, recognized for their achievements, and from diverse backgrounds. Congratulations Will!
