The Heidelberg Center for Quantum Dynamics and the Heidelberg Graduate School for Fundamental Physics invite applications for the Quantum Ideas Factory – an intensive 52 hour science hackathon at the interface between rigorous academic research and free interdisciplinary exploration.

During the three-day event in Heidelberg, agile teams of young scientists will transform their own ideas into actionable research projects addressing global challenges from quantum science. By thinking across interdisciplinary areas, the participants will devise new research strategies and transformative applications in order to harness the full innovative potential of the emerging fields of design and experimental studies of quantum materials, quantum many-body physics, and photonic quantum interfaces.

Highly qualified master students, doctoral candidates, young researchers and postdocs with solid science background and an innovation mindset are welcome to apply. Although the focus of the event is designed for quantum science and interdisciplinary border areas, we encourage anyone with a natural sciences background to apply.
