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.
