The quantum internet represents a transformative leap in communication technology, promising capabilities far beyond the scope of today's internet. Unprecedented levels of security, enhanced privacy, advanced sensing and metrology, and accelerated communication solutions—to name a few.
Europe is now at the very forefront of this technological revolution, with several world first achievements such as the world's first full stack network linking quantum computers. This remarkable progress places Europe in a unique and strategic position to lead the next digital revolution.
The rise in international competition sets a pressing deadline for action. This event aims to act as a catalyst for transforming Europe's R&D leadership into world-leading European innovation. Thought leaders and decision makers from academia, industry, European institutions, and member states come together to discuss steps and strategies for leveraging Europe's achievements and maintaining its lead in this rapidly evolving sector.
This event will provide an opportunity to gain on overview of the field of quantum internet development across member states from preeminent leaders in quantum internet technology, and hopes to create a platform for collaborative discussion on advancing Europe's technological leadership in this arena.

The EU is known for a wide spectrum of grant instruments supporting the way to a clean economy. However, first of all, private funding for first-of-a-kind systems of capital intensive clean technologies needs to be de-risked in order to reduce costs of financing for these systems and enable adoption.
