The new quantum computing network "EIN Quantum NRW" aims at expanding national technological leadership in the research and development of quantum technologies, training specialists for this future field, and opening up applications for business and large-scale industry in the heart of Europe.


The Second Quantum Revolution is unfolding now, exploiting the enormous advancements in our ability to detect and manipulate single quantum objects. The Quantum Flagship is driving this revolution in Europe.


As an international graduate school, the Max Planck School of Photonics (MPSP) offers an interdisciplinary master's and doctoral program in the field of photonics. Students and doctoral candidates are fully funded and supervised by outstanding fellows conducting research at 16 university and non-university partner institutions. In addition, close contacts with industrial partners enable early connections to the photonics industry. The MPSP is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
