Quantum Technologies Walk&Talk Webinar Series


In the coming years, quantum technologies will make it possible to do things that might seem unthinkable today. With quantum, it will be possible to perform sophisticated computational tasks, like modelling biomolecular and chemical reactions, that the most powerful supercomputers cannot currently manage. Quantum will allow us to send sensitive information safely to anywhere, or even diagnose diseases quicker by looking inside cells.

Europe has a long-lasting tradition of excellence in quantum research. This legacy is brought forward with the Quantum Technologies Flagship, a large-scale, long-term research initiative funded by the EU that brings together research institutions, industry and public funders, consolidating and expanding European scientific leadership and excellence in this field. Quantum Technology is also a topical theme within the, the European Commission funded initiative that aims at providing professional and tailored guidance to H2020 and Horizon Europe projects in order to help them to better understand and contribute to their respective Standardisation domain.

In this webinar we will look at the “State of the Art” in Quantum Technologies Standardisation, discuss European Policy and Strategies for development of adoption of Quantum Technologies within the Digital Single Market, presenting expert contributions from European and International Standards Development Organisations (SDOs).
