The bill establishes a program at DOE called the Quantum User Expansion for Science and Technology (QUEST). The QUEST program establishes public-private partnerships between leading research institutions and industry innovators. By giving U.S. researchers access to quantum computing hardware and quantum computing clouds, the QUEST program encourages greater participation in the development of quantum information sciences, thereby facilitating a larger and more diverse range of research into these evolving technologies.
