The collaborative project qp-tech.edu was launched in 2022 by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). It comprises four German Universities (Erlangen, Jena, Ulm, Paderborn) and the Fraunhofer IOF in Jena. qp-tech.edu pursues the goal of supporting the German photonics industry for the challenges of the second quantum revolution in the area of personnel development at scientific, technical and management level through suitable training and further education. The project will use the following instruments to reach this purpose:

  • Systematic and continuous needs analysis (qp-tech.analytics),
  • Development of new, interdisciplinary training modules (qp-tech.study),
  • Analogue and digital further training for specialists (qp-tech.pro),
  • Intersectoral exchange programs (qp-tech.experience).

Digital Teaching Platform

On our moodle platformExternal link hosted by the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena you can access material from previously given workshops, watch short lectures on quantum physics and learn about quantum effects that can be seen in a lab. After the free registration, please send an email containing your moodle nickname and email address to jobst.ziebell@uni-jena.de and you will be granted access to the qp-tech.edu courses.

Paderborn University presents its strategy paper on "Industry training for Platform-Independent and Photonic Quantum Computingpdf, 120 kb · de".

The second quantum revolution is ongoing and will result in novel applications based on the use of quantum phenomena. In order to keep pace with this development,an active response from German industry is vital. In addition to learning the scientific basics, companies recognize the potential of quantum technologies for their own products and markets and derive company-specific strategies. Key scientific players in quantum photonics in Germany and industrial companies are cooperating in qp-tech.edu with the aim of creating the personnel requirements for the implementation of photonic quantum technologies in the German photonics industry.

In the project qp-tech.edu, the Abbe Center of Photonics at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena de is collaborating with the physics, quantum and photonics departments of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-NürnbergExternal link,  the University of PaderbornExternal link, the University of UlmExternal link, and the Fraunhofer Institute of Applied Optics and Precision EngineeringExternal link.

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is funding the qp-tech.edu with 2 million EUR at least until 2024.
