Short description of the content: Provides conceptual and methodological toolbox to understand the physics of quantum liquids and learn the essentials to conceive a quantum technology (QT). Different QT platforms are discussed 

Extended description of the content: The course is conceived for students who wish to refine their knowledge and competences on theoretical condensed-matter physics and for students who wish to acquire a conceptual and methodological toolbox to understand the physics of quantum liquids, comprehend how quantum technologies work, and learn the essentials needed to conceive them. Since quantum technologies have been developed in different experimental platforms, with different forms and similar functionalities, the course choice is to privilege a wide-open conceptual and methodological vision in the first 2/3 part of the course, and devote the last part to practical implementations, which can always be deepened whenever needed.
