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).

Background

The second quantum revolution is ongoing and will result in unprecedented applications based on the use of quantum phenomena. In order to keep pace with this development, dynamic development of German industry is necessary. In addition to learning the scientific basics, companies must recognize the potential of quantum technologies for their own products and markets as early as possible and derive company-specific strategies. In accordance with the funding guidelines, 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-Nürnberg,  the University of Paderborn, the University of Ulm, and the Fraunhofer Institute of Applied Optics and Precision Engineering.

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