Together with European industry, expanding and strengthening the whole supply chain, OpenQKD stimulates European companies to the forefront of Quantum Technology. The consortium not only supports the large QKD suppliers but also provides an opportunity for partners to showcase their technology in field trials to reinforce commercialization.
In addition to the creation of novel quantum-enhanced products we provide capacity-building measures with staff training to foster know-how on QKD deployment and operation. OpenQKD will support the career development of junior staff members from project-associated industrial partners that contribute as stakeholders in different use-cases.
OpenQKD will organize end-user workshops, open to external stakeholders. We aim to raise the awareness on the need and benefits of QKD-enabled security. Personal training activities will be complemented by practical experience from the evaluation of use-cases.
