Quantum technology, chips and Europe’s digital sovereignty

We are now on the brink of a second quantum revolution: beyond simply understanding the quantum world, we are able to manipulate it. The potential future applications of this quantum technology are staggering: from ultra-fast computers to tamper-proof communications, from novel simulations of drug molecules to new industrial processes that vastly cut down on CO2 emissions. It is important for Europe to be at the forefront of this new revolution, much as it was in the discovery of quantum mechanics.
This video was produced on the occasion of the STOA workshop ‘Quantum and chips: Developing European industrial capabilities in quantum technologies’, which took place on 12 October 2022.
