INDUSTRIAL PERSPECTIVE ON QUANTUM TECHNOLOGIES

We would like to draw your attention to a special event at the World of Photonics Congress. The event will take up a current and highly important topical issue which experiences national and European funding to a significant extent. The issue involves quantum technologies whose value and foreseeable industrial use will be examined in two practice-oriented presentations:

INDUSTRIAL PERSPECTIVE ON QUANTUM TECHNOLOGIES

The European Quantum Technologies Flagship Program
Tommaso Calarco, Ulm University, Ulm, DE

Time for Quantum Technologies?!
Wilhelm Kaenders, President, TOPTICA Photonics AG, Gräfelfing, DE

Quantum Technologies: an industry perspective
Thomas Strohm, Robert Bosch GmbH, Stuttgart, DE

The event takes place on Monday, June 27, 2017, 16:30 – 18:00 pm, in room 1 of the ICM-Internationales Congress Center München. Make use of this possibility to get a focused over-view of this issue which is important for research as well as future industrial use.
