All eyes on ‘quantum’
13.07.2023 - The new, international stage of quantum technologies was presented by Messe Stuttgart and its partners on July 12.
With a new format, Messe Stuttgart is creating a forum for this to bridge the gap between science, start-ups and industry, as well as to make innovative quantum technologies visible in Europe: Quantum Effects. The trade fair and conference for quantum technology premiers on 10 and 11 October 2023 with Bosch Quantum Sensing as hosting partner, the Quantum Business Network QBN as congress partner, and QuantumBW as additional supporter.
To promote the development of a European ecosystem and to bridge the gap between science, start-ups and industry, the trade fair and conference for quantum technologies will focus on four pillars in this field: “Computing and Enabling
Technologies”, “Software”, “Sensors” and “Communication”. Hosting partner Bosch Quantum Sensing is also playing a key role in shaping the trade fair and conference.
Quantum Effects is sponsored by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labor and Tourism. Click here for a video message by Minister Dr Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut that was recorded prior to the press conference.
Under the umbrella QuantumBW, the state of Baden-Württemberg bundles and strengthens research activities and initiatives from science and industry in order to bring quantum research into application more quickly, and giving structure to the already existing network of universities, research institutions, global players and start-ups.
The Quantum Business Network QBN is the fastest-growing organization promoting networking, business creation and the development of organizations working in the field of quantum technologies and its value chains with currently over 70 members worldwide.
By combining an exhibition, conference for science and industry users and the start- up pitch and careers areas, Quantum Effects offers an attractive program for the trade audience, with highlights such as the forum for presenting exhibitors’ showcases and application examples.
The centerpiece is the first-class conference program, which includes scientific lectures for experts and user presentations for industry, management and politicians. Beyond this core element, the accompanying program of forums, workshops, networking and career area, start-up pitches, and art installations rounds off the first edition of Quantum Effects.
The fair’s main target attendee groups include representatives of small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as large companies. The trade fair combined with conference is aimed equally at companies that have already initiated quantum technology projects and those that are not yet active in the market, but are interested in building up expertise in this field. Students and academics from universities and academies are also part of the target group, as are political leaders at state, national and EU level.
The Quantum Effects Award, which will be presented for the first time during the exhibition and conference for quantum technologies Quantum Effects 2023, acknowledges excellent innovations that connect the classical and quantum worlds, are used in different industries, enable individual services and open up new perspectives. This also applies to components with the help of which quantum technologies and solutions are significantly advanced.
