On the international scale, there is increasing interest in quantum technologies, leading to opportunities for all in both scientific and business roles relating to the industry. However, a significant pain point in this area of science is the lack of talent and diversity within the ranks of the quantum community.
This is a closed-door, by-invitation-only event with Mr Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Trade and Industry, on matters that impact Singapore’s future economy, talent development, innovation capabilities of our companies, and how individuals and companies should prepare themselves for the future.
