Technology News |
By Nick Flaherty


The first World Quantum Day is to be held on April 14th, with online talks from a wide range of researchers and developers of quantum technology highlighting the strength of the industry in Europe.

The grass roots initiative in over 65 countries is inviting all quantum scientists, engineers, educators, communicators, entrepreneurs, technologists, and their organizations, to organize their own activities, such as outreach talks, lab tours, debates and interviews.

The current programme includes talks from researchers in Paris for the public keynote, with Alain Aspect from the Institut d’Optique Graduate School, Université Paris-Saclay, explaining wave/particle duality of photons.

Other talks include researchers from Portugal, the UK, Malta, Greece, Ireland, Switzerland, Romania and Turkey. Companies giving talks include Cambridge Quantum Computing and IBM Research

The US government this week announced its participation in the event. Following the launch of a programme to boost quantum skills, the Q-12 partnership will bring quantum learning activities to classrooms across the US through a community driven project called QuanTime.
