Annual Event 2017
How will they change our world?
"The expectations are high: Quantum technologies are supposed to bring transformative advances to society. Future developments in e. g. robotics or autonomous vehicles strongly depend on whether their potential can be fully unleashed. The field of quantum research and its technological promises, however, are as intriguing as they can be incomprehensible.
With this event we also strive to break the futuristic term down to its possible meaning for our everyday life: How will future computing look like and what timescales are we speaking about? What impact might quantum technologies
have on e. g. communication and cryptography? The latest European Commission’s flagship initiative will address the quantum topic in depth. How can science and industry contribute – and collaborate?
By providing latest research examples and insights from politics and industry, the Helmholtz Association wants to foster the discussion on our technological future."
These are some of the questions that will be addressed during the Helmholtz annual event in Brussels in March 2017.
