Brussels: 28 July 2021 (TDI)
European Union states have jointly signed a Quantum Communication Infrastructure project. This project will collectively provide Europe with digital sovereignty.
With the help of this project, the European region will have a protected and reliable source of communication services that are based on quantum mechanics. This project will also strengthen the European capabilities in technology, cybersecurity, and industrial competitiveness.
QCI project will assist Europe with securing its encryption systems against cyber threats and enable data centers to exchange and store information securely. It will also benefit in preserving the long-term privacy of government data.
Other advantages include the incorporation of quantum technologies into conventional communication infrastructures. Its space-based component will cover long distances across the EU countries.
