The EPIC Industrial Quantum Photonics Technology Summit brings together the European quantum industry ecosystem to commercialize upcoming products from the current R&D initiatives. The event gathers experts and leaders from industrial companies worldwide to discuss the second quantum revolution, its applications, and challenges. We will discuss the four primary application areas in which a paradigm shift is expected: quantum communication, quantum imaging, quantum computing and simulation, and quantum sensing and metrology. The target is to engage the audience to explore synergy and business opportunities in a networking-oriented event, with many opportunities to meet the other participants.
