Centre for Quantum Science and Quantum Computing (QSC) of the Universität Basel and the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg

The joint project will aim to intensify the development of quantum technologies in Europe starting in 2018

The Georg H. Endress Foundation supports the project "Quantum Science and Quantum Computing" of the universities of Basel and Freiburg from 2018 to 2027. The new center of excellence under the roof of Eucor – The European Campus - fosters cooperative research of both institutions into diverse aspects of modern quantum science.

The closer cooperation between the University of Basel and the University of Freiburg is leading to the establishment of an internationally visible center of excellence in quantum physics. At the heart of the new project is an international cluster for postdoctoral researchers and two doctoral programs in Basel and Freiburg. As a unifying element, the postdocs will work on joint research projects at both universities.

Background information on the Georg H. Endress Foundation

The charitable Georg H. Endress Foundation, based in Reinach, Switzerland, is devoted to promoting young talent in academic and non-academic fields as well as adults in the "three-country corner" straddling the German, French, and Swiss borders. The foundation also provides funding and support for people, associations, organizations, and institutions engaged in research, continuing education, training, and job retention in the fields of electronics, electrical engineering, and biotechnology at the national, bi-, or trinational level.

Background information on Eucor – The European Campus

The European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC) Eucor – The European Campus evolved in the course of a longstanding partnership between the universities on the Upper Rhine. In December 2015 the five member universities – the University of Basel, the University of Freiburg, the University of Upper Alsace, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, and the University of Strasbourg – signed the founding documents to give the international research and teaching alliance its own legal personality. The aim of the alliance is to form a cross-border science and research area with an international reach, pooling the competence and potential of 15,000 researchers, 15 doctoral candidates, and 115,000 students.
