Europe’s Quan­tum Event of the Year

Europe’s Quan­tum Event of the Year:

Quan­tum Flag­ship wins Lar­gest Quan­tum Tech­no­lo­gy Con­fe­rence for Hano­ver –

Every two years, Europe’s top rese­arch and inno­va­ti­on net­works gather at the EQTC, the Euro­pean Quan­tum Tech­no­lo­gies Con­fe­rence. The lar­gest quan­tum event of its kind, the EQTC is held by the Euro­pean Quan­tum Flag­ship in coope­ra­ti­on with a local orga­ni­zer. More than 700 key figu­res from the sci­en­ti­fic, poli­ti­cal, indus­tri­al and start-up com­mu­ni­ties came to the con­fe­rence to pre­sent the sci­en­ti­fic and tech­no­lo­gi­cal pil­lars and dis­cuss sel­ec­ted glo­bal deve­lo­p­ments.

In all, over 700 guests from both Ger­ma­ny and abroad gathe­red at this year’s EQTC in Hano­ver to get a strong and inspi­ring over­view of Europe’s quan­tum eco­sys­tem. Orga­ni­zed by Quan­tum Val­ley Lower Sax­o­ny (QVLS), the four-day con­fe­rence offe­red a top-class pro­gram rich in varie­ty that shed a broad light on all aspects of the quan­tum tech­no­lo­gies. Over 130 spea­k­ers in 58 ses­si­ons com­bi­ned with a sup­port­ing pro­gram that included pos­ter pre­sen­ta­ti­ons and an exhi­bi­ti­on lay the ground­work for talks and a gre­at num­ber of lively dis­cus­sions, sti­mu­la­ting exch­an­ges, and mutu­al inspi­ra­ti­on. Here, atten­de­es repea­ted­ly stres­sed the rele­van­ce of know­ledge trans­fer and the importance of insti­tu­ting the trai­ning and edu­ca­ti­on pro­grams nee­ded to ensu­re the avai­la­bi­li­ty of suf­fi­ci­ent­ly qua­li­fied quan­tum tech­no­lo­gy pro­fes­sio­nals.

A fur­ther high­light of the EQTC was the fair that accom­pa­nied the con­fe­rence and that attrac­ted around 40 big-name exhi­bi­tors from the quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on and quan­tum tech­no­lo­gy sec­tors, inclu­ding Quan­tum Del­ta NL, the Ger­man Aero­space Cen­ter (DLR), Munich Quan­tum Val­ley (MQV) and the Quan­tum Alli­ance (QA). SQuaD, the Umbrel­la Pro­ject for Quan­tum Com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on in Ger­ma­ny, was of cour­se also on hand with its own booth to tell atten­de­es about its mis­si­on to fos­ter net­works and iden­ti­fy oppor­tu­ni­ties for col­la­bo­ra­ti­on. 

To sum up, the EQTC was a high­ly suc­cessful event that offe­red deep insights into the world of quan­tum tech­no­lo­gies and deli­ver­ed ground­brea­king know­ledge that will bene­fit sci­ence, rese­arch and indus­try well into the future.
