MSCA QUSTEC EUCOR Summer School 2021

After so long QUSTEC fellows are happy to announce the 2021 edition of the QUSTEC Summer School to be held in Endelberg (Switzerland) from the 14th to the 17th of September as a joint event with the fellows of the QCQT PhD school in Basel and the NCCR Spin Consortium. This event is co-organized by the University of Basel and IBM Research – Zurich. The goal of the summer school is to educate doctoral candidates on different topics across the broad field of quantum science and technology. Being (hopefully) one of the first in-person community event after the pandemic, it also aims at boosting relations and networking between researchers.

 Addressing some of the grand challenges in Quantum Science today: The principles of quantum mechanics, which govern physics, chemistry, material science and computing at the atomic scale have already led to a wave of new technologies.


Community | Sep. 14th
Academia | Sept. 15-16th
Industry | Sept.17th

Eucor – The European Campus is a trinational alliance of five universities in the Upper Rhine, a border region between Germany, France and Switzerland. In 2015, the five universities created a dedicated legal entity in the form of a European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC), solidifying a cooperation that dates back to 1989. In this context, the universities retain their autonomy, but can act together in a more targeted way under the name “Eucor – The European Campus”. As the first EGTC carried exclusively by universities, Eucor – The European Campus is a model project, unique in the European research area.

Multi-thematic school


QUSTEC is a doctoral training program set up by the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC) Eucor – The European Campus. 37 early stage researchers benefit from outstanding training opportunities within the field of Quantum Science and Technology, in a highly international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral setting.

Quantum science is an interdisciplinary field that can lead to new technologies precisely because of the multitude of perspectives. We would like to bring young researchers from all over the world to the Upper Rhine in order to perform fundamental research and to work on applications, such as new, secure communication networks, more precise sensors, the development of new quantum materials and prototype quantum computers.
