Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) is a unique English-speaking international graduate only research university located in Skolkovo, just outside of Moscow. Established in collaboration with M.I.T., Skoltech is an integral part of the Skolkovo Innovation Center that comprises a complete high-tech city with a number of international R&D centers and start-up incubators, several of which are focused on quantum technology.

Skoltech's Quantum Software Initiative is lead by Jacob Biamonte.

Planned research projects have an applied mathematical and numerical analysis flavor and focus more generally on the foundations of (i) non-stoquastic quantum annealing, (ii) quantum enhanced machine learning algorithms, (iii) quantum tensor network methods and (iv) the interrelations between tracks (i), (ii) and (iii). The group has access to large-scale computing facilities.

Skoltech has a research portfolio covering a range of quantum and machine learning technologies. This includes the Quantum Polariton Simulators Group by Pavlos Lagoudakis and Natalia Berloff as well as the Tensor Networks for Machine Learning Group by Ivan Oseledets and Andrzej Cichocki.
