A spring school should be a place of fruitful discussions and spontaneous encounters. Therefore we plan a fully in-person event while ensuring maximum safety for our participants from whom we consequently require full vaccination status according to French regulations and strict compliance with local hygiene rules. More information regarding current travel restrictions be found on the French government website. As we are constantly evaluating the pandemic situation, please understand that we will react spontaneously on updated Covid-19 regulations.


We believe that science should be accessible to everyone and the individual financial situation should not inhibit scientific enthusiasm. Hence the spring school participation is free of charge upon successful application. Together with our partners we are able to offer spring school scholarships for a select number of applicants. The scholarship includes reimbursement of travel expenses and guaranteed pre-paid accommodation in Strasbourg. All you have to do is to check the respective box in the application form and we will inform you about our decision prior to the school in case of successful application.

In case you will not receive a spring school scholarship, do not worry, we will assist you in finding affordable accommodation.


Master and PhD students with a strong interest in quantum science and technology and the motivation to pursue a career in this field are welcome to apply. Although the focus of the spring school is designed for quantum science and technology, we encourage interested applicants with any natural sciences or engineering background to apply, especially also from under-represented groups. Priority will be given to Master or PhD students studying at European Universities

Participants will be selected based upon a short description of their motivation presenting their reason for applying as well as their poster abstract covering a recent research project they have been involved in (e.g. your Bachelor thesis). Please only apply if you intend to travel to Strasbourg.
