*A unique collaborative venture was initiated several months ago, between the Jerusalem College of Technology and French Company Laboratoire QuantUp, which provides outsourcing services for academic and Industrial entities in Israel and abroad. The company specializes in a variety of research fields including optics, Material Physics, Simulations and Software. As part of this venture a branch of the French company, named Quantup, operates within Campus Lev of the Jerusalem College of Technology. Most of the employees of this branch are students, graduates and staff members of the Jerusalem College of Technology. The company works in collaboration with the various departments and institutes of the Jerusalem College of Technology, particularly with the Applied Physics and Electro-Optics departments.
General Director of the Jerusalem College of Technology, Shay Gilboa, stated that, “collaborations between academic institutions and companies have existed for years, but Quantup is a unique venture and the first of its kind, since all its activities in Israel occur within an academic framework and the company employs students and graduates of the institution.”
Due to this unique venture, Quantup offers scholarships for students studying for masters’ degrees and facilitates collaborative research projects with staff members in the institution. The company also offers research projects for students in their third and fourth years of study, and so, aids them in completing their degree requirements and expediting their integration into the workplace.
