Professor Dr Jürgen Mlynek kindly agreed to visit Imperial College to host a talk and Q&A session on the EU Quantum Technology Flagship program.

Professor Mlynek is the Chair of the EU Expert group on Quantum Technology and was the president of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres between 2005 and 2015. On the 9th June, he visited Imperial College to lead an “open-house” talk and Q&A session on the EU Quantum Technology Flagship, for the benefit of stakeholders in the UK.

Well-attended by staff and students from Imperial and further afield, the event started with a summary of the EU program, and was followed by a lively round of questions to the panel, where Professor Mlynek was joined by Professor Ian Walmsley and Emeritus Professor Sir Peter Knight.

The talk was co-hosted by Imperial College Skills & Training Hub in Quantum Systems Engineering (QSE) and the Networked Quantum Information Technologies Hub (NQIT), based at Oxford University.
