Hackathons

By June 2021, we have organized 3 hackathons on quantum technologies with different focuses. The aim of organizing these hackathons was to energize the participants and increase awareness on the readiness levels of different quantum technologies by enabling the participants to develop actual projects with practical applications in the near term.
