1 April 2023 ‚Äď Announcing the start of the quantum projects. With the power to create unbreakable encryption, supercharge the development of artificial intelligence, and radically expedite the development of new drug treatments, quantum technology will revolutionize our world. On the 19th-20th April 2023, the quantum journey will begin in Prague with the kick-off meeting of the Qu-Test and Qu-Pilot project.

These projects open up new applications in the fields of metrology, imaging, secure communication, and highly complex calculations by supporting SMEs of the quantum supply chain with experimental production and open testing for quantum technologies in computing, communication, and /or sensing in Europe. Renowned quantum scientists will gather in Prague to build upon their spectacular achievements in quantum research:

  • In the Qu-Pilot, they are aiming to develop and provide access to the first, federated European production facilities for quantum technologies, linking together existing infrastructures in Europe.
  • The network of the Qu-Test will support the creation of a trusted supply chain through the validation of quantum devices, chips, components, and systems by the testbed network as an independent third party.

Both projects are intended to cater to the needs of the industry and support it via Open Calls, thus boosting EU’s position in the quantum race.
