ORD LINC Series: Launching Interdisciplinary Connections

Modified: May 30, 2017

The Office of Research Development (ORD) is hosting a networking event on June 20 from 10 AM - 12:30 PM focused on quantum technologies and computational theory.

The ORD LINC Series is designed to highlight research across Northwestern departments and schools in a specific topic area that has been emphasized for federal research funding. The NSF has recently named “The Quantum Leap: Leading the Next Quantum Revolution” as one of their 10 Big Ideas for Future NSF Investments. The DOE Office of Basic Energy Sciences (BES) sponsored a large strategic workshop, “Basic Research Needs Workshop on Quantum Materials for Energy-relevant Technology,” in 2016.  DoD agencies have recently released several calls for proposals related to quantum technologies and algorithms.

The event will include presentations by the faculty listed below on their research and perspectives, followed by discussion, networking, and lunch (for registered participants):

The event will be held on the Evanston campus (location TBD). Registration is required. To attend, please complete the registration form by June 15, 2017.
