Research Areas in QUEST
The QUEST-Leibniz Research School emerged from the Cluster of Excellence QUEST - Centre for Quantum Engineering and Space-Time Research. After the ending of the funding in 2014, QUEST members have decided to continue to use the name QUEST as a brand. Since then, most research and administrative structures remained largely intact.
The research activities of QUEST-Leibniz Research School are divided into main areas:
In addition, the so-called Task Groups were launched in QUEST: interdisciplinary, interdepartmental working groups which can react quickly and flexibly to issues and challenges of the four research areas.
Lastly, you can find a collection of publications of QUEST-PIs.
