Inno­va­ti­on Hub for Quan­tum Com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on

The Inno­va­ti­on Hub for Quan­tum Com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on is inten­ded to sys­te­ma­ti­cal­ly link and ther­eby fur­ther inten­si­fy Germany’s exis­ting and com­pre­hen­si­ve rese­arch land­scape in the field of quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on with the indus­tri­al deve­lo­p­ment of com­pon­ents, sys­tems, and solu­ti­ons for quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. The Inno­va­ti­on Hub con­nects the acti­ve stake­hol­ders, pro­jects and cur­rent topics in quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on, rather than con­nec­ting indi­vi­du­al, unre­la­ted topics.

Objec­ti­ves of the Hub:

Indus­try-led Pro­jects

The Inno­va­ti­on Hub for Quan­tum Com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on com­pri­ses six indus­try-led pro­jects and the coor­di­na­ting umbrel­la pro­ject SQuaD.

In addi­ti­on to the umbrel­la pro­ject, the hub also pro­mo­tes indus­try-led rese­arch pro­jects that par­ti­ci­pa­te in the work of the umbrel­la pro­ject through an indus­tri­al advi­so­ry board. The focus is on spe­ci­fic indi­vi­du­al appli­ca­ti­ons of the enti­re ran­ge of quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on.

Focal Points

The Focus of the Inno­va­ti­on Hub is on the fol­lo­wing Topics:

  • Secu­ring indus­tri­al net­works and cri­ti­cal infra­struc­tu­re with the help of quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on
  • Field test­ing com­pon­ents for their usa­bi­li­ty under real, indus­try-rele­vant appli­ca­ti­on sce­na­ri­os
  • Defi­ning hard­ware and soft­ware inter­faces bet­ween sys­tem com­pon­ents and pushing rela­ted stan­dar­diza­ti­on acti­vi­ties for­ward
  • Deve­lo­ping hard­ware and soft­ware as well as modu­les and sys­tems for quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on in Ger­ma­ny and Euro­pe, the home of high tech­no­lo­gy
