Quantum Future Academy 2023


In 2023, the Quantum Future Academy was held as a bi-national event! For the first time, students from Israel and Germany were attending two one-week academies about quantum technologies. The first week took place from 19th – 24th February 2023 in Israel, and the second meeting was held from 3rd – 10th September in Germany.

The 2023 Academy was a full-scale success. Click here for our follow-up report.

Explore the application potential of quantum technologies!

Throughout the academy, students obtained an exclusive overview on state-of-the-art research and development in quantum technologies. Challenges here are not limited to the field of physics: transferring basic principles of quantum physics into actual technical applications still requires enormous effort in development, e. g. in the fields of engineering sciences or information technologies. Those who want to make these new technologies successful must create business models and find markets as well. Young start-ups as well as established companies are massively investing in quantum technologies already today. During the academy, students received an exclusive insight into this cutting-edge field of technology, and the opportunity to thereby expand their horizons towards both the academic and the entrepreneurial world. The Quantum Future Academy 2023 was a separated two-week program containing:

  • Excursions to leading companies and institutes
  • Lectures by experts in the field of quantum technologies
  • An exclusive insight into the current state of research and development
  • Talks and networking with entrepreneurs, start-ups and founders
  • Interactive workshops
  • Social program with evening events
