QuantumBW – The LÄND of quantum technology

Tuesday, 14 May 2024, from 3:30 pm

Registration via the AFQC form


Together, we have laid the foundations for an ecosystem in which good ideas can become successful technologies. At AFQC 2024, we will discuss with all the key players in the German and European quantum computing ecosystem how we can get quantum computers into use, which quantum computing platforms are the most promising and what our ecosystem needs to successfully advance quantum computing on a global scale in the long term.

Information on the programme will follow shortly. To get you in the mood: a look back at AFQC 2023.

Die Anmeldung für die Teilnahme am AFQC 2024: scale up! ist nur über unsere Registrierungsseite möglich. Die Registrierung öffnet am 22. Januar 2024 und schließt am 30. April 2024. Sie erhalten nach Registrierung und Prüfung die Einladungslinks mit den finalen Zugangsdaten.

Experience how quantum technology research is put into practice in the land of tinkerers and inventors. Connected under the umbrella of QuantumBW, science, start-ups and established companies are developing a broad-based ecosystem of quantum technologies – as broad as the expertise in our state: from promising approaches and established enabling technologies to quantum sensor technology and quantum computing.

Learn interactively in one afternoon how research in quantum technologies as a whole creates synergies and paves the way for quantum computing. Discuss how basic research on quantum systems and application-orientated software development come together. Meet the heads of the hidden champions of quantum enabling technologies and be inspired by co-operation projects between basic research and start-ups, between young companies and large corporations.
