LuxQuanta with the Students
18 / 04 / 2022
A Quantum-specialised workforce is needed.We are entering the Second Quantum Revolution, and alongside a myriad of applications in many different fields and markets, it comes to a workforce bottleneck that is expected to worsen as quantum technologies consolidate. Many job opportunities will be directly connected with computer science and engineering degrees. Still, many others supporting the commercial side of this quantum industry will also need a specialised workforce, confident to navigate the wonders of the Quantum Realm and its applications.
LuxQuanta's supportThis year we have been invited to join many exciting conferences, fairs and online webinars where we could connect to the student community to bring the world of quantum technologies closer to them.
In our talks, we explained our work in LuxQuanta and the opportunities our industry can bring you for your professional development.
On February 23rd, Vanesa Diaz (LuxQuanta) presented alongside Rotem Arnon-Friedman (Weizmann Institute of Science) and Rupert Ursin (Quantum Technology Laboratories) at Quantum Bits Series. In this edition, dedicated to Quantum Communications, the students could discover quantum communications bit by bit, learning from the three experts about their work and its possible impact on society... all in just 5 minutes.

From March 16th to April 6th, our R&D Developer Dr Pau Gómez Kabelka, offered at ICFO a set of lectures on FPGA. The lectures were hands-on FPGA programming lectures for scientists without (or very basic) experience in FPGA programming with the intent to provide simple, functional and open source examples which incrementally incorporate new FPGA programming concepts. After its completion, the attendees could create their FPGA designs to interface with digital & analogue IOs.
On Friday 8th of April, LuxQuanta was again with the future generations of professionals in the Quantum Career Symposium held in La Pedrera in Barcelona, organised as part of the CARLA Hub.
The event was designed for #STEM undergraduates, master students, or early-stage researchers. Our Business Development Director Vanesa Diaz was also there, giving an overview of what we do and the type of professionals that the Quantum Communication industry will need over the next decade.
