Quantum Systems 2022
"Quantum Systems - Developing cutting-edge technology. Shaping the Future."
The "Quantum Systems 2022" congress on June 21 marked the official launch of the new research program for the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, with which it will combine funding in photonics and quantum technologies in the future. In the AXICA, the approximately 300 participants could look forward to exciting guests and a diverse stage program. They were welcomed by Thomas Sattelberger - Commissioner for Transfer and Spin-offs from Science at the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
The congress, held in our light-flooded forum, focused on the importance of the program for business, science and society, future opportunities, but also on international perspectives and how quantum systems are communicated to the public.
Science journalist Ranga Yogeshwar gave a lively keynote speech on 21st century technology innovations and talked about the opportunities and challenges they present.
On the exhibition area in our auditorium and in the foyer, many very different exhibits from the funding measure "Quantum Aktiv" were waiting for the guests, an initiative that, among other things, promotes the development of teaching materials and games for a simpler understanding of quantum technologies and physics.
AXICA project manager Tetyana Hess regretted not being able to deal more intensively with the contents of the congress and the exciting exhibition, as the organization of the program items up to the evening networking required all her attention. She was all the more pleased about the extraordinarily positive feedback from Ann-Kristin Rink, organizer at the responsible BMBF project management agency:
"At this point, simply a very big thank you again for your commitment before and at the BMBF Congress Quantum Systems. Both we and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) are more than satisfied and the feedback from the guests that we have received so far has been very positive. From the arrangements in the run-up to the event itself, we felt very well looked after and the cooperation was also very pleasant and uncomplicated. Many thanks for that! Please pass this on to the entire team as well."
