The role of Single Quantum

New projects

Epique

European Photonic Quantum Computer

EPIQUE is a large EU funded project (€10,340,000) carried out by 18 partners from 12 countries. Single quantum works together with academic laboratories and deep-tech start-ups to build a European quantum computer based on scalable photonic technology. The developed quantum computer will be made available to European industry and academia to identify scientific and commercial use cases.
