Within the framework of the Cluster of Excellence QuantumFrontiers, a range of Education and Outreach initiatives are supported, with the goals of (1) enhancing public and school engagement with the topics of quantum physics, nanotechnology, and metrology and (2) providing structured education for all levels of University students in these topics. We will present an overview of these activities, namely: (a) an initiative of MasterClasses aimed at high-school students, teachers and undergraduates to provide insights into and methods of basic research, (b) an out-of-school Laboratory foeXlab, which has provided hands-on experience with contemporary optics to over 500 students, (c) a course of studies in Quantum Engineering aimed at providing a common quantum Physics and nanoengineering curriculum, and (d) an international research school, which intensely links the physics and engineering disciplines in the training of scientists.
