The United Nations (UN) has designated the year 2025 as the ‘International Year of Quantum Science and Technology’ to increase public awareness of the importance of quantum science and its applications.

  • The resolution for this was led by Mexico at the UNESCO General Conference in May 2023, which was adopted by almost 60 countries.
  • Also, the year 2025 marks a century since German physicist Werner Heisenberg published a paper laying the foundation of modern quantum mechanics.
    • He was awarded the Nobel Prize for physics in 1932 for the creation of quantum mechanics.
  • India launched the National Quantum Mission in April 2023, to be implemented from 2023 to 2031 by the Department of Science & Technology (DST).
    • It has four verticals: Quantum Computing, Quantum Communication, Quantum Sensing and Metrology, and Quantum Materials and Devices.
