FUTURAS IN RES - The Quantum Breakthrough

SEP 2022


Hilton Berlin (on-site or virtual)

As an important partner of German and European industry and integrator as well as multiplier of disruptive technological leaps, it is the task of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft to also bring new findings in the field of quantum technologies into application. This is the topic of this year's science conference "Futuras in Res - The Quantum Breakthrough" on September 28-29, 2022 at the Hilton Berlin, Mohrenstraße 30.

The second-generation quantum technologies have already resulted in an increasing number of practical applications and bear a high innovation potential for the years to come. This year, our invited international experts from research and industry will present and discuss the latest R&D advancements and applications in the areas of:

Session I: Quantum Imaging & Sensing
Session II: Quantum Communication


Prof. Ronald Freund, Head of Department, Fraunhofer HHI

Prof. Christoph Günther, Institute Director, German Aerospace Center (DLR)
