IQST Programmes

IQST strives to fulfil its mission through a series of coordin­ated programmes, in research, inter­na­tion­al­isa­tion and network­ing, and outreach and communication.

Highlight­ing programme

Content, object­ive and scope

The IQST highlight­ing programme connects IQST to other leaders in quantum science, and advert­ise quantum science and techno­lo­gies as a whole. The IQST keynote lectures are given by renowned and world-leading research­ers in the field and are open to every­one, includ­ing the general public.

Resid­ing programme

Content, object­ive and scope

The IQST resid­ing programme invites science writers, editors and journ­al­ists at the IQST insti­tutes to shine light on quantum science from new angles. The scient­ists, in turn, learn from the writers about the challenges of getting science attract­ively in the media.

Boost­ing programme

Start compact blue-sky projects

We support projects in which the funding can be flexibly used over two years to test a specific question quickly. The programme is open to the entire IQST community and specific­ally aiming at early-career fellows. The projects should be aligned with one of IQST’s tracks.

Connect­ing programme

Foster academic exchange and estab­lish links

We support PhD and postdoc second­ments to other leading academic quantum insti­tu­tions and global players in quantum industry world­wide, cover­ing travel and accom­mod­a­tion for up to three months.

Visit­ing programme

Invite external researchers 

The IQST visitor fellow­ship covers costs for travel and accom­mod­a­tion during guest stays for one to three months at IQST insti­tutes. The funds are inten­ded to estab­lish and strengthen collab­or­a­tions and cooper­at­ive research with partic­u­lar relev­ance to the IQST community.

Network­ing programme

Estab­lish new connec­tions and networks within IQST

Plant seeds for new future research direc­tions. Network­ing within IQST is facil­it­ated through the IQST open-topic workshops, IQST colloquium talks by external research­ers, IQST network­ing events, and related activities.
