TOKYO, Sept. 30, 2022 — QunaSys and the University of Strasbourg launch “Quantum Computing for Chemistry – The Next Revolution,” an intensive five-day industry training event that will be held from Monday, Oct. 24 to Friday, Oct. 28 as part of the QAREER pilot of the EU Quantum flagship’s QTEdu learning ecosystem.
The workshop will be led by instructors from industry and academia specialized in quantum information, quantum chemistry, and experimental and theoretical physics from QunaSys and the University of Strasbourg.
The training covers real world examples to help students understand the applicability of quantum computing in the chemistry field. Presented in a modular format, the workshop can be taken as a general overview of quantum computing and its industry applicability, a hands-on coding program to learn quantum computing algorithms and use case development, or as an end-to-end program covering both modules. Following successful completion of the training, students will receive an official certificate.
The training workshop is endorsed Japan’s largest Quantum Practical Application Research Consortium (QPARC) that has retrained more than 170 students from 50 major Japanese corporations and the French Public Quantum Computing Infrastructure aQCess Atomic Quantum Computing as a Service, managed by the French National Research Agency under the Investments of the Future Program (reference ANR-21-ESRE-0032).
“Training the workforce to be quantum-ready is crucial for corporations to be able to embrace the quantum revolution. Chemistry is considered one of the most promising fields for quantum computing advantage and this affects agriculture, aerospace, automotive, consumer goods, electronics, energy, or pharma,” said Tennin Yan, QunaSys CEO.
“Academia and Industry must work together to provide training opportunities in quantum that bridge foundational concepts with real-world practical applications. This is the first step towards unlocking the full potential of quantum computing for chemistry, innovative materials, and beyond,” said Shannon Whitlock, Professor at the University of Strasbourg.

About the University of Strasbourg
The University of Strasbourg (UNISTRA) is one of the largest universities in France, with nearly 51 000 students (including 20% of international students) and over 2800 teachers-researchers. The event will take place at the ISIS institute of the University of Strasbourg and the CNRS – one of the leading research institutes in France and internationally. Founded in 2002 by Nobel Prize Laureate Mr Jean-Marie Lehn, it focuses on developing and promoting top level multidisciplinary fundamental and applied research at the interface between Chemistry, Physics and Biology. In 2019, the University of Strasbourg and the CNRS officially founded the new European Center for Quantum Sciences (CESQ) attached to ISIS, which aims to develop new lines of research and technology exploiting quantum principles, at the frontiers to chemistry, physics, materials science, and computing.
