Quantum Communication & Space

on 11-09-2024

... The Quantum Communications group is organizing the Summer School "Quantum Communications & Space" on September 11-12, at Instituto de Telecomunicações, (Amphitheatre Abreu Faro), located within Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) in Lisbon.

This is an initiative organized in the scope of the PTQCI – Portuguese Quantum Communication Infrastructure project, which aims to empower university students and young professionals by providing cutting-edge insights into quantum technology and space exploration.

PTQCI is a consortium dedicated to developing and deploying quantum communications in Portugal, aligned with the EuroQCI – European Quantum Communications Network initiative. This initiative aims to establish quantum secure communications across Europe in the coming years. The consortium includes universities and research centers such as Instituto de Telecomunicações, ISEL, and IST, national bodies like GNS, IPQ, and FCCN, industrial entities such as Deimos, Adyta, Omnidea, and Warpcom, and telecommunications companies including IP Telecom and Altice Labs.

Participation in the Summer School is free yet requires registration. For more information, visit:
