ICFO: The European Quantum Zone

This year, the Mobile World Congress 2024 (MWC24) has hosted once again The European Quantum Zone. Curated by ICFO and located in Hall 6 – Stand 6A8, it featured the latest achievements and advances mainly in the field of quantum technologies, offering the audience of the mobile congress topics that could be of interest for this public and that related mainly to cybersecurity, telecommunications, artificial intelligence, finance, healthcare, reliability and agility in secure communications, data centers and 6G, among others.

This year, the stand included not only companies exhibiting their products and services, but also a quantum technologies corner hosting quantum coffee talks dedicated to give visitors to the stand at the MWC a glimpse of the current status and progress of Quantum Technologies and European projects that are taking place currently and are shaping the future of the telecom sectors. Every day from 11:00am to 12:00pm, the series of 10min talks were given to help give visibility to the work that is being done in Europe and raise awareness amongst the mobile community that quantum technologies are a potential candidate for a technological change in the future.

As part of these series of talks, ICREA Prof. at ICFO Leticia Tarruell gave a presentation about PASQuanS2, giving a glimpse about the mission and vision of the European project, explaining the type of technology that is being developed within the consortium in the field of quantum simulations, how it relates to quantum computing, the milestones that have been achieved so far, and, most of all, the efforts and amazing teamwork done by many partners to drive this technology into applications for innovation and technological end-users as well as expand and consolidate the pioneering position of Europe in this field.
