Geneva Science and Diplomacy Anticipator (GESDA) | Open Quantum Institute

We are honored and thankful to have a strategic and Platinum partner this year, The Geneva Science and Diplomacy Anticipator (GESDA) | OPEN QUANTUM INSTITUTE. The GESDA Open Quantum Institute aims to foster the exploration of use cases of quantum computing geared towards accelerating the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, linking industry and academic researchers and developers to SDG experts and UN organizations. GESDA will collaborate with the NYUAD Hackathon to align the hackathon applications with the  UN SDGs. GESDA will also support the NYUAD hackathon by providing travel awards to excellent students, mentors, judges and  speakers from around the world to attend the NYUAD Hackathon. GESDA will also grant an Open Quantum Institute prize providing an opportunity for the top team from this hackathon to be mentored, connecting them to industry and academic researchers for further maturation of their project, and also inviting them to attend the 2024 GESDA Summit (October Youth and/or the Youth and possibly Anticipation Summit in Cape Town (December)).
