World of Quantum 2023: Large crowds and a full program

From 27 to 30 June, the World of QUANTUM, took place at the Munich Trade Fair Center. Munich Quantum Valley (MQV) was present with a booth and organized a full-day scientific program together with IBM Quantum.

Also in its second year, the World of QUANTUM, international trade fair for quantum technologies at Messe München, attracted a large number of visitors. After a successful premiere with around 9000 visitors last year, the trade fair was able to attract an even larger audience this year. It also benefited from synergies with LASER World of PHOTONICS and automatica, which were held simultaneously and for which a joint ticket was valid.

Lively exchange at the booth

Hall A1 was dedicated to quantum technologies and was the center of the national and international quantum community for four days. The MQV was present with a large booth, which invited to a lively exchange. Students, start-up representatives, companies and research associations such as Quantum Valley Lower Saxony (QVLS) came by to discuss existing partnerships as well as opportunities for future collaboration.

There was great interest in the Munich Quantum Valley Partner Network and the connection of research activities to industrial applications.

Full-day program together with IBM Quantum

In addition to the exhibitor booths, there was a diverse supporting program of lectures, workshops and discussions. Munich Quantum Valley, together with IBM Quantum, hosted a one-day lecture program on the "Forum Quantum Science & Industry" stage. Under the title "Quantum Technologies: From Research to Application", the program invited visitors to discover and discuss topics ranging from quantum hardware, algorithms, and theory to infrastructure for and possible applications of quantum computing. The lecture program was accompanied by a poster session.

In concise talks, "Lighthouse Lightning Talks", the MQV Lighthouse Projects had the opportunity to present their research. The Lighthouse Projects, which are funded by Munich Quantum Valley through the Hightech Agenda of the Free State of Bavaria, complement and supplement the research activities of MQV and cover a broader spectrum of quantum sciences and technologies.
