What is the current state of quantum computing in Europe, and how can the continent stay competitive in this key technology? This DLD20 panel, moderated by Laura Citron, CEO of London & Partners, brought together Ignacio Cirac (Max Planck Insititute of Quantum Optics), Sebastian Luber Infineon Technologies, Ian Walmsley (Imperial College London),  Torsten Siebert (Frauenhofer-Gesellschaft) and Wolfgang Hübschle (Invest in Bavaria).

“Europe is well off with the science and has contributed to the discoveries and development of the field”, Ignacio Cirac believes. “So it’s in a good starting position.” Ian Walmsely agrees but also warns that “Europe needs to be coherent about saying, ‘We want to be leaders in Quantum, we want to build a European Quantum Super Computer.’” Torsten Siebert agreed with this perspective and emphasized the existing strong economic and political commitment of Quantum competitors, such as the US and China. He added, “we need to be clear about what motivates us with this technology (…) we need to find that and move forward.”
