Quantum & Society Research Colloquium

This monthly colloquium, organized by the Centre for Quantum & Society of Quantum Delta NL provides a platform for quantum & society researchers to showcase their research for a broader multidisciplinary research community. Our aim is to build and broaden the community engaged in research on non-technical questions related to quantum technologies, including their development, applications and implications. We will provide networking opportunities within the community, with the aim to facilitate exchange and new collaborations. The talks alternate between hybrid with networking drinks on location, and fully online. If you are interested in receiving our announcements, please email j.v.j.vanhoboken@uva.nl.

 Centre for Quantum and Society

The Centre for Quantum and Society is a knowledge and co-creation centre to maximise quantum technologies’ positive impact on society. We’re part of Action Line 4 of Quantum Delta NL, a unique program that aims to put societal impact first. We facilitate ground-breaking research into the ethical, legal, and societal dimensions related to quantum technologies. We develop tools to assess quantum applications’ impacts and develop governance approaches and guidelines. We support start-ups, small businesses, and corporate innovation teams in understanding the potential impact of quantum technologies on their sector, customers, and society. Last but not least, we initiate mission-driven innovation projects.
