Quantum-life Workshop

November 6, 2019

Sign up

Quantum phenomena underlie complex processes in nature and can be utilized to bring computation and simulation into a new era.

This second quantum revolution aims at engineering and controlling quantum systems for specific applications, thus overcoming the barriers currently imposed by classical approaches. Quantum technologies hold the potential to transform computing, encryption, communication, sensing and drug design, and to progress understanding of natural phenomena at relevant timescales and environments.

The Novo Nordisk Foundation Quantum-life Workshop will bring together quantum-aficionados from academia, industry, and investment for an exciting day of knowledge sharing and networking, with the ambition to nucleate research-innovation partnerships and lay the seeds for realising new quantum technologies in the life sciences.
