World Quantum Day events were planned for 44 different countries.

April 14 is World Quantum Day, an international initiative launched by scientists from more than 65 countries to promote public understanding of quantum science and technology worldwide. The date — "4.14" — marks the rounded first three digits of Planck's constant.

Officially launched in 2022, World Quantum Day already comprises more than 300 events held in 193 cities in 44 countries on five continents in 17 different languages. Scientists, engineers, educators, communicators, entrepreneurs, technologists, historians, and artists all over the globe organize their own activities, such as outreach talks, exhibitions, workshops, and panel discussions, to engage the general public with quantum science and explain how quantum technologies work and how they can impact everyday life.

World Quantum Day is an occasion to explore the potential of and raise awareness about quantum science, says Alberto Di Meglio, coordinator of the CERN Quantum Technology Initiative.
