Quantum for Dummies symposium

11:30 - 15:00
University of Twente, Waaier building (room 3), Enschede

Quantum technology is seen as a promising technology for the future. But what exactly is quantum, how does it work, and how do we apply it?

Quantum Delta NL and the MESA+ Institute of the University of Twente will jointly organize the symposium Quantum for Dummies. You don’t need any prior knowledge of quantum technology. In three short talks, you will get an insight in the basics of quantum. During the breaks and after the lectures, you can discover quantum in hands-on experiments and demonstrations.
