About the event

Quantum is like fusion; always just out of reach, but with the promise to change everything once it does arrive. Also like with fusion—where an actual reactor is being built right on KTH campus—KTH is very competitive, especially when it comes to quantum communication.

Quantum key distribution used to be science fiction, but what is happening now in the lab and what’s being implemented in testbeds all over Europe, will fundamentally change how we think about cyber security. Impact on priorities and roadmaps will be huge, both for startups and for established corporates. And more importantly: business opportunities will arise that we can’t even begin to imagine.

Welcome to join us in this workshop to explore the future of quantum communication, where innovation meets new horizons and boundaries are redefined!

Who should join?

This workshop, organized by the Quantum Sweden Innovation Platform (QSIP) in collaboration with the National Quantum Communication Infrastructure in Sweden (NQCIS), welcomes all stakeholders in the quantum communication ecosystem.

Whether you are a researcher in academia or corporate R&D, a master’s student in quantum technology or related fields, or simply curious about the fascinating world of quantum communication, you are more than welcome!

In order to hit the ground running, we recommend reviewing this recent white paper within the field.
