The European Quantum Week is an online multi-modular event that will run parallel to the Berlin Science Week. Organized by the European Quantum Flagship, with the collaboration of the European Commission, in the context of the Berlin Science Week, it will include outreach activities for the general public, specialized talks and presentations for the quantum community as well as European policy-making and institutional visions for the future of Europe within the field of Quantum Technologies. In a more specialized ambience, it will also feature presentations and talks by quantum experts, who will show the latest results obtained by the Quantum Flagship projects.

The event will have three main target audiences:

  • Quantum specialized community
  • General public, focused mainly on high school audiences
  • Policymakers

Why participate
These are just a few reasons why you should register to this event:

  • Learn about the latest research and technological advances on quantum technologies
  • Have an in-depth view of the European vision for the development of future infrastructures in quantum technologies.
  • Know about the Quantum Flagship projects and what they have achieved so far.
  • Listen and exchange ideas with quantum experts in the field of academia, industry and policy making.
  • Participate in the local outreach events that are being planned for schools around Europe and that will be open to anyone interested in learning more about the topic.


The event will run approximately from 12-15h on Monday and 12-14h (CET) the following days during the week running from November 2-6, 2020.
