Join the Quantum Revolution

24 June 2020, 13:00 - 14:00 - Eastern Daylight Time (UTC - 04:00)

In this webinar, I will present my efforts as a “global quantum ambassador” and the resulting benefits, as well as how these activities led to the creation of my company QURECA. I will also provide an introductory overview of quantum technologies around the world (national programs, sectors involved, and the global distribution of start-ups in the field). Finally, I will discuss the different opportunities for anyone willing to take their professional paths within the field of quantum technologies, and how QURECA can help to take part in the quantum revolution.

Dr. Araceli Venegas-Gomez spent several years working for Airbus as an aerospace engineer, before falling in love with quantum mechanics. She then decided to follow her passion for physics, and moved to Scotland to pursue a PhD in quantum simulation at the University of Strathclyde. Following discussions with the different quantum stakeholders she had over the last years, Araceli identified the need to bridge the gap between businesses and academia, as well as to raise the quantum awareness to the general public. Continuing her work on outreach advocating quantum technologies, she was named the “quantum ambassador”, after winning the OSA Milton and Rosalind Chang Pivoting fellowship in 2019. Araceli founded her own company called QURECA to create a link between the different stakeholders in the quantum community, and generate global opportunities with quantum technologies.
