Quantum technologies have the potential to change the world as we know it and Europe risks lagging behind if all of its best brains do not contribute to this change. In this session, quantum technologies researcher Dr Ruth Oulton will share the latest research results and an outlook on upcoming technologies, and will pinpoint the obstacles that women today still experience in their career in this frontier research area. These can range from the practical – lack of childcare facilities at conferences and lack of maternity leave at the early-career stage, to unconscious bias and lack of mentorship by the leaders in the field. This will be followed by a group discussion in which the panel will explore best practice and strategies to overcome current obstacles to women participating in this fascinating research endeavour.
