Event Details

Designing functional molecules, formulations, or solid-state compounds effectively is often limited by current computing power and requires much serendipity. Quantum mechanical simulations can accelerate the discovery process and will open up completely new ways of materials development.

Join us at the QBN Meeting on Quantum Computing for Chemistry and Materials Science – the exclusive and non-public expert meeting, supported by HQS Quantum Simulations – to interactively discuss relevant challenges and early-stage trends and benefit from valuable networking opportunities in a trust-based environment.

Register now – the number of participants is limited!

QBN (Online) Meetings

The QBN (Online) Meetings are not ordinary (online) meetings, webinars or workshops. They are unique in terms of participants and topics and offer valuable market insights and networking opportunities.

The QBN Meetings offer a trustful environment for Open Innovation due to the limited number of participants. There is no livestream at our online meetings and each participant participates equally with video and audio.

The goal of the QBN Meetings is to identify and discuss relevant challenges and trends in R&D and business and to initiate collaborations. To this end, a special focus is placed on what each participant can do for the others and what the others can do for the individual. In the 1:1 meetings the participants can get to know each other personally and generate first ideas for joint projects. The workshops and roundtable discussions offer space for your visions and new inspiration.


All participants are asked to attend the entire meeting.

To participate you need access to a computer (preferred), smartphone or tablet. You can test the proper functioning of the video, microphone and speakers in the test meeting.

With your registration you agree that we can use your data to inform you about details of this event. QBN will also make the list of participants available to other participants or interested parties. Your participation will not be confirmed until you have received a confirmation email from us. With your registration you confirm that you have read and agree with our Events Terms and Conditions.

All prices are subject to the statutory value added tax.
