Achievements

Quantum cryptography offers unconditional security, which means that for the first time in history we can encrypt information and have a mathematical proof that it is only the designated receiver who can decrypt it. ICTQT currently works on it’s even stronger variant. In, so-called, self testing protocols the users are protected even from backdoors that could be introduced by a malevolent producer of their devices.

The European Quantum Technologies Flagship initiative is expected to result in „game changing” impacts that benefit economy and society and pave the way to the technological and industrial leadership of the EU. Quantum Technologies Flagship seek to unlock the full potential of quantum technologies and accelerate their development and take-up into commercial products in Europe.
