Quantum industry readiness and blockchain skills infrastructure

Jacob Sherson receives DKK 4,694,651 grant in connection with the Digital Europe project Quantum Technology Courses for Industry

Professor MSO Jacob Sherson and AU collaborators have been awarded DKK 4,694,651 as part of the Digital Europe project Quantum Technology Courses for Industry. The AU team, including the Centre for SMEs and Adam Gordon, will both develop courses on basic quantum phenomena and industry relevant topics within creativity and innovation, product development and placement and industry forecasting. In addition, a blockchain-based multi-stakeholder network will be constructed allowing for cross-platform personal acquired skills wallets and data-privacy conserving employer CV-authentication. The network will also allow for anonymised aggregation of learner data for organisation, national and international policy feedback and explorative crypto-currency based compensation to individual learners for permission to use their data.
