QuBIT EDU Conference 2021

Education in quantum physics with focus on quantum technologies – status and perspectives

QuBIT EDU is a network of research groups in physics education, which develop curricula and implement empirical research projects to drive the field of modern quantum physics education.


The conference will predominantly be in German. The programme will appear end of August and registration will start in September. More information will follow on this page.

Aim of the conference

The dynamic and quick evolution in the field of Quantum Technologies both in academic research
and in industry demands for a modern quantum education throughout Europe, leading to greater
quantum awareness and literacy for school students, university students and the workforce in

The challenge of an immense scaling-up in training and education while increasing interdisciplinarity
and drawing acute attention to current and future corporate and societal needs can only be achieved
with a comprehensive and coordinated effort. This challenging task requires intensified efforts in
quantum education from the development of new teaching concepts to empirical research. All levels
from professionals and university students in physics to learners in areas that traditionally do not get
in touch with quantum physics (e.g. engineering) and school students have to be addressed with
effective training and educational concepts.

On this online conference, the current status and possible perspectives for educational efforts in the
field of quantum education will be discussed
