Delegation trip with focus on connecting quantum ecosystems around the iEEE Quantum Week QCE

Berlin Partner für Wirtschaft und Technologie GmbH connects the Berlin Quantum ecosystem with one of the world's leading quantum hubs - Montréal, Québec in Canada.

The overall objective of the mission is to connect Berlin-based QT companies and research institutions with their Canadian counterparts, create B2B meetings and networking opportunities and promote information exchange.

As one of the leading international events in the quantum sector, IEEE Quantum Week — the IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (QCE) — is bridging the gap between the science of quantum computing and the development of an industry surrounding it. IEEE Quantum Week is a multidisciplinary quantum computing and engineering venue that gives attendees the unique opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities with quantum researchers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, developers, students, practitioners, educators, programmers, and newcomers.

We invite you to join us from 15-19 September for this exceptional occasion to establish connections with the foremost global players in Quantum Technologies.
