“Putting outstanding PhD and MSc students at the forefront of international research”

Why quantum science and nanomaterials?

The continuing miniaturization and integration of information technologies requires a better understanding and control of the quantum nature of matter that becomes dominant at the (sub) nm scale. By exploiting quantum effects, such as coherence and entanglement, we can create new and innovative devices and materials that will shape the future of technology and positively impact society as a whole. QMat prepares the next generation of quantum scientists and engineers for this task, by putting outstanding MSc and PhD students at the forefront of international research combined with an engaging training programme bridging physics, material science, chemistry and engineering.

Application deadline May 25*, 2018.

*For local and European students only (anyone who does not require a visa to study in France)

Programme starts September 2018
for Masters students starting their 1st or 2nd year and beginning PhD students
