Kick-off Event of the Einstein Research Unit
On May 12, 2022, about twenty quantum physics research groups from Berlin met for a kick-off event at the Harnack House in Berlin-Dahlem. The research groups are part of the Einstein Research Unit "Perspectives of a quantum digital transformation: Near-term quantum computational devices and quantum processors".
Within the Berlin University Alliance, the researchers set out jointly to understand the precise computational power of near-term quantum devices and to devise building blocks for quantum processors. Prof. Dr. Jens Eisert is the speaker of the ERU.

In a comfortable and productive atmosphere of the Harnack House, scientists met for a diverse program of talks, discussion sessions and a poster exhibition. "Variational hybrid quantum-classical algorithms", "Realistic quantum mitigation", "Quantum systems identification" are the titles of only some of the exhibited posters.
The program was crowned by exciting conversations during a dinner on the terrace or during a walk through the garden of the Harnack House. After the approval of the Einstein Research Unit in the pandemic year 2021, this kick-off event in May 2022 was an excellent opportunity for all participants to get closer personally and exchange ideas in person.
About Einstein Research Units
Einstein Research Units are designed to facilitate long-term research collaborations in strategically important research fields of the Berlin University Alliance. With the Einstein Research Units, strategically relevant interdisciplinary research fields can be strengthened and new inter- and transdisciplinary research foci can be developed.
About Berlin University Alliance
The Berlin University Alliance is a consortium consisting of three major Berlin universities – Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin – and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, established to shape research and education in Berlin. The four partners joined forces to further develop Berlin as a research hub with international drawing power. Together the partners explore major societal challenges, increase public outreach, promote the training of junior researchers, address issues of quality and standards in research, and share resources in the areas of research infrastructure, teaching, diversity, equal opportunities, and internationalization. The Berlin University Alliance is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the state of Berlin under the Excellence Strategy of the Excellence Strategy of the federal and state governments.
