Welcome to a Quantum Computing Co-Research: Learnings and New Ideas event in Tampere in November!

Join us to listen what the first research projects of Business Finland’s Quantum Computing campaign have achieved so far, what problems quantum computers could solve in the near future and what new projects researchers would like to carry out. Could any of them solve your problem? Companies can participate to these projects, either with their own projects or providing their own problems and data for researchers to solve or just by guiding, monitoring and learning. 

There is also time in the program to discuss with on-going projects and new idea presenters. Networking plays a big role for the event and it will not be recorded but materials will be available after the event.
