The Hackathon is organized as part of the Quantum Computing Development  project.

The goal of the Hackathon is to solve industrial problems using quantum algorithms and technologies. Quantum hardware based on various technologies will be used or simulated during the Hackathon.
Innovative solutions are to be delivered in the form of software.

Participation is free and free of charge. Eligible for the Hackathon are individuals with a basic knowledge of programming in Python, and basic skills in at least one of the following two areas:

  • quantum computing;
  • machine learning.

The maximum number of participants is 20, who will be selected by the Organization based on the curriculum vitae submitted.

Participants will be divided by the Organization into teams of 4 people , preferably with mixed backgrounds.
Each Team will address a specific problem identified by the Organization and which will be communicated at the beginning of the work.
