Finnish Quantum Days

Otaniemi & Kumpula

9.9 - 10.9.2024

The Finnish Quantum Days, supported by InstituteQ and the Finnish Quantum Flagship, is an annual event that was first organized as InstituteQ’s Symposium in 2023. This event invites together the Finnish quantum community, and the mission is to invigorate quantum collaboration and offer views on current and future developments in quantum science and engineering.

The event will have four focus areas: quantum materials, quantum devices, quantum algorithms & information, and quantum ecosystems. These areas and visions for future prospects will be highlighted by academic and industry perspectives. The two-day event immediately extends into two satellite events: The 6th International Workshop on Quantum Resource Estimation and unitaryCON 2024.
