EPIC Online Quantum Technology Meeting on Implementing Secure Strategies for Past, Present & Future Communications
Online Event

Europe is pushing forward the industrialisation of Quantum Cryptography solutions. Driven primarily by the roll-out of 5G networks and secure IoT, such integrated solutions are also critical for utility, banking and defence systems. In the course of this meeting, we will engage with the key players. That includes companies working on maturing quantum computing and QKD generators. They will discuss with visionary end-users, who will challenge them to create secure, permanent all-optical data storage systems, as well as define a practical roadmap for quantum secure communications.
Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
