We spent a great day at the European Commission‘s offices attending the EuroQCI (European Quantum Communication Infrastructure) project’s kickoff. All 26 national testbed projects were showcasing their plans for the first round of testbeds. The 5 industrial projects’ representatives presented their ways of improving QKD technology from EU-27. In this group, KEEQuant is coordinating the SEQRET project (stay tuned for more details) and its main goals
- CV-QKD from EU-27
- certifiability of CV-QKD
- scaling CV-QKD through photonic integration
Finally, the overarching PETRUS project showed its scope. Exciting times ahead for quantum cryptography in Europe!
