The Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) (German: Institut für Quantenoptik und Quanteninformation) is a subsidiary institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and was founded in November 2003. The institute, with sites in Innsbruck and Vienna, is dedicated to fundamental research in quantum optics and quantum information, both theoretical and experimental.

The research institute has around 100 employees and consists of a section in Innsbruck, with four working groups led by Rainer Blatt, Francesca Ferlaino, Rudolf Grimm and Peter Zoller and two junior groups led by Gerhard Kirchmair and Oriol Romero-Isart, and a section in Vienna with four groups led by Časlav Brukner, Miguel Navascués, Rupert Ursin and Anton Zeilinger. The institute is an independent research center with strong links to the University of Innsbruck and the University of Vienna. Thereby a close exchange of students and postdocs is established and the members of the institute can be integrated in teaching at the universities.
