The Quantum Spaceship

QTSpace has launched a new coordinated action to promote QT in Space aimed at the engagement with stakeholders in Europe. In particular, the initiative has the goal to open a collaborative channel with the relevant departments at the European Commission and European Space Agency.

Quantum Space Network

Distinguished scientists and representatives of industrial actors operating in some of the ESA member countries have agreed to collaborate with QTSpace towards the achievement of the goals of this initiative.
