Discover the scientific and economical potentiality of quantum industry as well as of challenges linked to the deployment of these technologies

In the context of education activities on Quantum, Université Côte d’Azur is organizing with the support of the European network EIT Digital a summer school around Quantum Computation and information for the week of 16-21 of June 2024 in Nice Valrose, in the heart of French Riviera.

The summer school is adressed to master's or doctoral students as well as to young professionals who are not specialized on Quantum; the scope is to make them aware of scientific and economical potentiality of quantum industry as well as of challenges linked to the deployment of new quantum technologies.

The school will be articulated around two axes:
  • practical works and student group-working, progressively moving from basic quantum information to applied topics such as solving optimisation and machine learning problems using quantum algorithms or quantum communication and networks ;
  • entrepreneurship in quantum, via presentation and Q&A sessions with french and european industrial actors active on quantum developement as well as on applications of quantum to business use cases.
The school provides a work amount equivalent to 2 ECTS.

An outline of the programme is at the following page.
