QF kickoff

The registration for the Quantum Technology Flagship kickoff in Vienna is now open.

This marks the point at which the first round of funded projects are presented to each other, to the community, and to the decisionmakers who are interested in supporting the flagship. On day two, the community as well as official groups reflect on the start and help setting the flagship program on a successful trajectory for the next steps.

The Kickoff will be held in a great setting in Vienna - with a festive day at the Hofburg and a focused working day at the Academy of Sciences. Please join us in launching the program and setting it onto a successful path.

Registration closes on 25 September 2018.
We will confirm your registration on 1 October 2018.
