EPIC Online Quantum Technology Meeting on Essential Key Strategies for Tomorrow’s Security and Defence Sectors

26 February 2021

15:00 – 17:00 CET


Sponsored by



Rapidly evolving progress in quantum technologies is leading the way for next-generation navigation and defence systems. They need to be extremely robust and reliable. During this meeting, we will hear the vision and strategies of end-users targeting GPS-deprived precision and robust timing systems. We intend to focus on the industrial need for an ultra-secure data communication based on unbreakable quantum cryptographic solutions.


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.
