EU Pro­ject: Nost­rad­amus pre­pa­res Euro­pe for a Quan­tum World

Euro­pe laun­ches Tech­no­lo­gy Leap for Safe Digi­ta­liza­ti­on:

The Euro­pean Com­mis­si­on has com­mis­sio­ned a con­sor­ti­um (“Nost­rad­amus”) led by Deut­sche Tele­kom to build the test­ing infra­struc­tu­re for quan­tum key dis­tri­bu­ti­on (QKD). Part­ners in the con­sor­ti­um are Tha­les, the Aus­tri­an Insti­tu­te of Tech­no­lo­gy (AIT), as well as experts from across indus­try and aca­de­mia. The test­ing infra­struc­tu­re paves the way for the imple­men­ta­ti­on of Euro­QCI – a high­ly secu­re pan-Euro­pean com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on net­work based on quan­tum tech­no­lo­gy. Euro­QCI is inten­ded to pro­vi­de more secu­ri­ty for data cen­ters, com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons net­works and cri­ti­cal infra­struc­tu­re such as hos­pi­tals and power plants – via fiber optics and satel­li­te. The use of quan­tum tech­no­lo­gy is a key pil­lar of the EU’s stra­tegy for cyber secu­ri­ty in the coming deca­des. Click here for more infor­ma­ti­on about Nost­rad­amus.
