⚠️ Why Quantum In Africa Deserves Attention
🌍 Global efforts by quantum engineers and researchers are facilitating the rapid development of quantum technologies.
🌍 Quantum technologies have the potential to help solve many of today's global challenges
🌍 Africa needs to equip its talented young population with education & skills now so they can contribute & shape new enterprises, future careers, and workforces
🌍 OneQuantum Africa is our effort to make that happen
It is essential to remember that Africa has sufficient materials and human resources to build shared prosperity. All we need to do is unleash this potential.
Here are some key learnings from our communities:
Africa should work towards technology transfer for scientific and economic independence
A strong foundation in education enables capacity building and mastering of emerging technologies like quantum
Scientists in Africa should explore bilateral collaborations as a starting point with a vision to scale to regional and continental levels
Communities that reach beyond academia are essential to moving quantum forward not only in Africa but globally
Young people are generally curious and talented such that introducing them to new fields like quantum computing needs to happen now
We need to take advantage of open access and communities to join forces and start work on some of the biggest challenges and opportunities in the continent to attract the necessary support from local governments and organizations
Collaboration is vital to enhance the level of science and technology in the continent
Quantum tech is a sensitive industry such that as Africans, we need to participate and contribute to shaping it to build trust and ensure tech sovereignty
Unlike other decades where African countries were just beneficiaries of emerging technologies, now is the time for the African continent to pioneer ground-breaking innovations
Africa's quantum opportunity strongly depends on building a solid foundation in education
OneQuantum Africa is a community effort. I am happy to hear from everyone about how best to move quantum forward in our beautiful continent. We are always looking for volunteers and partners to help us expand and improve our efforts.
Please reach out to me with your goals at email@example.com.
Please share this with your colleagues and let’s move quantum forward in Africa and join the global ecosystem NOW!

The Quantum World Congress is a net-new, large-scale, cross-sector, multi-domain event, convening and connecting the world's quantum ecosystem in Washington, DC. We invite you to join us at QWC, to spotlight the transformational impact that quantum science and technology will have across industry, government, and society.
Comprising a forward-thinking educational agenda, as well as an exposition of products and services, QWC will connect stakeholders, decision-makers, and future developers of quantum technology from both the public and private sectors.
