We invite you to join IDQ and some of our partners at the Quantum Industry Day in Switzerland 2021 (QIDIS21). Save the date now for this virtual conference, taking place on 5th October 2021.

Significant private and public investments are rapidly pushing quantum technologies out of the laboratory and into real-world applications. Leading enterprises are playing a key role in the revolution, as then not only provide the enabling technologies, but also the commercial know-how to bring the applications to market.

Co-organized by IBM Research, ID Quantique, Zurich Instruments, NCCR QSIT and Euresearch, the Quantum Industry Day gathers key stakeholders from the worlds of academia and industrial R&D to foster an exchange of ideas and accelerate the development of new quantum products.

Expect a rich program, covering the areas of quantum computing, quantum sensing, quantum instrumentation and quantum communication.

The agenda is split into: Keynote sessions in the morning and 4 dedicated workshops in the afternoon:


We invite you to join IDQ’s afternoon workshop on Quantum-Safe Security
