UPT Quantum Hub

  Date and Time
Thursday, September 28, 2023 - 14:00,  until  Friday, September 29, 2023 - 14:00
UPT Central Library, 2b, Vasile Pârvan Bvd

     The first UPT Quantum Hub workshop aims to catalyze a Quantum ecosystem in Timișoara. We want to gather lecturers, IT professionals, undergraduate, master's, and Ph.D. students interested in the new computational and communication technologies that arise in the quantum domain. The workshop will consist of introductory lectures designed to spark interest in the scientific and technical topics associated with the Quantum domain. In this regard, we bring speakers from Equal1, a startup developing a commercial quantum processor, ATOS Romania, a company researching quantum communication impact on the future of cybersecurity, and from the Politehnica University of Timișoara, who are involved in the national RoNaQCI project.

     UPT Quantum Hub is part of the national research project RoNaQCI - Romanian National Quantum Communication Infrastructure.
