Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel, and Queen Máxima visited The Green Village together on Wednesday, a living lab where innovation helps transform the living environment. They were also given a tour of the labs of the Bionanoscience department of the Faculty of Applied Sciences, where researchers of the so-called European Synthetic Cell Initiative work on artificial cells. The visit ended with a guided tour of QuTech, the Delft research institute where scientists work on, among other things, quantum computers and quantum internet. There the pair spoke to founders of start-ups that are already working with the latest quantum techniques.
