Workshop General Awareness Quantum Computing
The workshop General Awareness Quantum Computing introduces you to the impact that quantum computing will have on your organisation, and on businesses and society at large. The audience needs not have prior knowledge of quantum physics, but should possess common knowledge of everyday computers. When done, you will have a general understanding of the possibilities, opportunities and threats that we can expect from quantum computers in the future.
- Introduction to the principles of quantum computing
- 3.5-hour workshop: no prior knowledge needed
- Clear focus on business relevance: no difficult physics, but special attention to opportunities and threats
- Independent and non-profit: we tell an honest story
Join one of the workshops on the last Friday of the month (from 13:00 - 17:00)
Meet new people from various fields
Add an exam and certification for €25

Choose your own preferred date
Content viewed from the perspective of your business
Includes certification for everyone who passes the exam
Please book roughly 1.5 month in advance (earlier is always okay)
During the 3.5 hours the workshop takes, first some elementary concepts of quantum mechanics are explained. It becomes clear that a quantum computer has a tremendous potential to solve various problems, but there are formidable challenges in building the right soft- and hardware. Moreover, there exist many myths and suggestive promises about the possibilities of quantum computers, many of which turn out to be false. Together with other participants and the presenters, you will discuss how quantum computing influences your business and what you should do to create opportunities. One of Quantum.Amsterdam’s core values is to avoid hyping quantum technology, but rather to tell a balanced and honest story. We are grateful for collaboration with ING, Rabobank and ABN AMRO during the development of this workshop.
Registration for the workshop can be done via the form below. After registration, we will confirm your booking and contact you about payment information (typically by invoice).
The workshop is taught by:
Koen Groenland is Quantum Innovation Officer at QuSoft, the research centre for quantum software. He’s responsible for making QuSoft’s research on quantum software and algorithm accessible to businesses and society. Additionally, Koen is community manager at Quantum.Amsterdam, where he organizes events, meetups and networking opportunities. Koen holds a PhD on the applications for near-term quantum devices.
