The University of Cologne’s North America Office celebrates its 10th anniversary with a festive in-person event at the German House, featuring art, music, networking, and the panel discussion “Transatlantic Perspectives on Quantum Science and Technologies.” On this occasion, we are honored to welcome a delegation from the University of Cologne, led by Rector Prof. Axel Freimuth. The panel will highlight the University’s Research Cluster of Excellence “Matter and Light for Quantum Computing” (ML4Q) and its partner institutions in Germany and the U.S.
Scientists have theorized about the potential of quantum computing for decades. But only in recent years have private and public sector investments in the development of quantum technologies grown significantly. Rapid advances in quantum technologies could revolutionize the world as we know it – from genomic sequencing to transport route optimization, from code-breaking to artificial intelligence.
- Hear perspectives from both sides of the Atlantic on quantum research, competition, and collaboration in the international quantum arena
- Learn what quantum technology can do for you and why taxpayer money should be invested in quantum technologies
- Experience University of Cologne’s Cluster of Excellence research first-hand
- Refresh your German-American connections and explore new collaborations
- Enjoy music, art, and a dinner reception following the Panel
Please note that all attendees must show proof of vaccination upon arrival and wear masks during the event.
The event is co-hosted by the University of Cologne New York Office, the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany New York, the German Research Foundation (DFG) North America, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) New York, the Cluster of Excellence Matter and Light Quantum Computing (ML4Q), Wunderbar Together, and the German Center for Research and Innovation (DWIH) New York.
