Quantum Meets Leiden: IBM lecture & mini-symposium

Tuesday 13 June 2023
You are welcome at 15:00, the first lecture starts at 15:15 sharp.
Huygens/Oort building
Niels Bohrweg 2
2333 CA Leiden
De Sitterzaal

Get inspired during a lecture and Q&A with Armand Stekelenburg from IBM on how they envision the quantum future.

Then get to know the quantum ecosystem in Leiden, from research to education and local companies, and learn how they are building towards this quantum future. Many exciting things are happening in the hub. The event will highlight some of these aspects, including research on quantum sensing, recent developments in the quantum algorithms group, the collaboration with the MBO instrument school and the work of one of the local spin-offs.

But more importantly, we welcome you to engage in discussions and get to know each other over a drink and some quantum games!
