PhD School on "High-Energy and Nuclear Physics within Quantum Technologies”


The four-week PhD School on "High-Energy and Nuclear Physics within Quantum Technologies” will be held from 28 June 2021 — 23 July 2021 Virtual/Online at the ECT* (European Centre for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas) in Trento, Italy.

High-Energy and Nuclear Physics within Quantum Technologies

In the past few years, noteworthy progress has been achieved in the understanding and control of quantum many-body systems that are relevant to solving models in high-energy, nuclear, and condensed matter physics.

This progress has been to a substantial extent the result of a collaborative effort of different communities. New tools and concepts from quantum information and quantum optics are now supplying new avenues to address open problems in particle, nuclear, and statistical physics, complementing more traditional approaches.

The purpose of this school is to bring together experts and leaders in quantum information and high-energy physics to train a new generation of researchers in the state-of-the-art methods, applications, and open problems in both fields. This school will have an important impact on enhancing synergies and further progress in this fast-developing field. The programme will also have a series of more specialized lectures on the latest developments.

The school, which is organised in the framework of the ECT* Doctoral Training Programme, includes lectures from leading experts in Quantum Technologies, Nuclear and High-Energy Physics and is open to interested students and researchers (see:
