Europe-wide network for quantum training for industries and decision-makers
Quantum technologies enable completely new applications for numerous industrial sectors. In order to tap the enormous potential and put it into practice, skilled workers are needed. There is a lack of qualified personnel, especially for the transfer from the laboratory to industry and product development.The QTIndu network, with the participation of the TU Braunschweig, the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and the Quantum Valley Lower Saxony (QVLS), is creating a Europe-wide network for quantum training.
The thirteen European partners are organised into two groups at QTIndu. The first group, including the TU Braunschweig and the PTB, focuses on the demand-oriented development of training formats. The second group, which also includes the alliance Quantum Valley Lower Saxony (QVLS), ensures the connection to industry. QTIndu aims to create a Europe-wide advanced training programme for quantum technologies and thus create a central connecting point for various industries and fields of activity.
QTIndu is funded within the framework of the Quantum Flagships, the Europe-wide quantum network, and has a project volume of 5.6 million euros. The project started in January 2023 and will run for three years until the end of 2025. In addition to TU Braunschweig and the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, the main project partners include Qureca Spain Ltd (project management), TU Delft (Netherlands), the University of Helsinki (Finland) and Aarhus University (Denmark). In addition to Quantum Valley Lower Saxony, partners in the industry network include the Stifterverband, the European Quantum Industry Consortium QuIC, ICFO (Spain), MinacNed (Netherlands), Airbus Defence & Space (Germany) and the Danish Academy for Technical Sciences (Denmark).
