Quantum Future Academy 2020

1-7 November 2020, Berlin, Germany

Quantum Future Academy 2020 – Today’s insights for tomorrow’s experts

In November 2020, the first European Quantum Future Academy will take place in Berlin under the motto “Today’s insights for tomorrow’s experts”. As part of its EU Council Presidency, Germany, with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as host, will invite around 60 selected students from the natural and engineering sciences from around 30 European countries to an exciting and exclusive week in Berlin.

From November 1st to 7th, participants can expect exclusive insights into the most diverse areas of applied quantum technologies. These include visits of companies and laboratories, meetings with researchers and industry partners, interesting hands-on workshops and extensive networking opportunities. Of course, cultural activities in the cosmopolitan city of Berlin are not neglected.

The Quantum Future Academy is an initiative of the BMBF and is organized in 2020 in cooperation with the European Quantum Flagship and supported by numerous institutions in the participating countries. The application process for the Academy is organised independently by the European partners in their country. This event is motivated by the intention to support the formation of a sustainable network of young European researchers in the future field of quantum technologies.


The selection process for Romanian students has two steps:

  1. Applications (in English) include a letter of motivation (1-2 pages) + CV.
  2. The short-listed candidates will be invited to an on-line interview. The jury will select 2 winners for the main Quantum Future Academy Event in Berlin.

Please send your application to nicolae.tarba@upb.ro  before 10 July 2020.
