Bridging Technology and Collaboration

We’re thrilled to share the success of the QBN Working Group Meeting on Quantum Computing & Applications, a pivotal event that brought together leading minds in the field of quantum technology. Held in the vibrant city of Delft, this event was a fantastic dive into the world of quantum computing and how it can help businesses and collaborations grow.

Thanks to Qblox, QuTech, and House of Quantum for hosting us, the event started on a high note. Over the two days, we had amazing talks about the future of quantum technology and how Europe can lead the way.

The event kicked off with Johannes Verst and Haissam Hanafi from QBN setting the stage, followed by Freeke Heijman from Quantum Delta NL introducing the House of Quantum. Insightful presentations began with Lieven M.K. Vandersypen discussing quantum computation and simulation, and Yoram Vos delving into a spin-4 backend for Quantum Inspire.

Mark Mattingley-Scott’s from Quantum Brilliance talk on a roadmap to mass quantum computing presented a future vision of the field. The first day’s sessions also included Arttu Huikuri exploring cryogenics in quantum ecosystems and Yigitcan Uzun from Qblox on scalable qubit control, among others.

Day two opened with Charlotte van Hees introducing QuTech and the Delft ecosystem, followed by Marco Matters discussing the Quantum Inspire Program. Doru Tanasa from the European Commission then gave a comprehensive overview of Quantum Computing Policy and Deployment in the EU.
