Quantum technologies (QT) are expected to bring transformative innovation to science, economy and society. This is acknowledged by governments, industry and researchers worldwide and corroborated by ambitious initiatives like the European Commission’s QT flagship. QTs are a result of the second quantum revolution kicked off by spectacular scientific advances in the control over individual and particularly tailored quantum systems and harnessing their unique properties like entanglement. They emanate from basic research and require concerted efforts in education, theory and engineering to advance all of their application domains. The QT summer school aims at graduate students, PhDs, postdocs and people from industry with technical background. It offers an efficient, first-hand introduction into this exciting field and its current status in science and industry. All major areas of QT — quantum communication, simulation, computation, metrology and sensing — will be presented by leaders in their respective field, with emphasis on those who are particularly strong in Germany. In addition, start-ups and established companies will present their vision of what will enable QT and of what QT can achieve. The participants will have the opportunity to present their own work in the form of posters.
