The Industry Working Group of the Quantum Community Network and the Flagship Coordination Action / QFLAG of the Quantum Flagship Initiative continues the activities for the creation of the European Quantum Industry Consortium (QuIC), and proof of this were the 1st teleconferences of the QuIC Work Packages held the second week of September.
While industry has already an advising role in the QT Flagship initiative, this newly formed QuIC will be an interest group implemented by a private organization, which will assert the common interests of the European QT Industry through advocacy. As such, it will represent the European equivalent of the US Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C).
As we reported in another post, aQuantum participates together with other European companies linked to quantum computing since the first call for the creation of QuIC, and we currently do so actively in the Work Packages of Market Trends and Use Cases, Standards and Education.
The importance of the creation of the QuIC is based on the unquestionable role and influence that it will have in the European Quantum Technologies landscape of the next decade.
