Building to Last: Annual Report 2019
This year we took crucial steps toward the future by developing three flagship ideas—or Grand Challenges—to further rationalize and define our four main research themes and formulate SBQMI’s visionary research agenda for the next decade. Importantly, we also continued to prioritize our people by promoting an equitable, diverse, and inclusive community with the goal of attracting and training the best talent in the world. In short, we are building to last. Read this year's report.
International PhD Program in Quantum Materials
A new joint-PhD program connecting the Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (SBQMI) at the University of British Columbia and the University of Stuttgart, with participation from the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany, offers unparalleled opportunities to study in the fields of quantum materials and quantum materials-based devices.

Connecting with industry
Research at SBQMI has the potential to spark breakthroughs with applications in quantum computing, telecommunications, clean energy, health and much more. However, for this value to flow from the laboratory to the wider world, tangible progress must be communicated and transferred to industry.
