Quantum Technologies in Developing Countries

Tuesday, 25 June 14:45 - 15:45

Show Floor Panel, Mees II

Quantum technology is a rapidly advancing field with the potential to revolutionize various industries. It uses the principles of quantum mechanics, including quantum entanglement and quantum superposition. Quantum technology promises improvements to various everyday gadgets, including reliable navigation and timing systems, secure communications, accurate healthcare imaging through quantum sensing and more powerful computing. 

Governments in technologically advanced countries have invested heavily to develop their country’s quantum expertise. On the other hand, most developing countries are lagging behind in investing in Quantum Technologies. The reasons are a lack of financial resources and vision/policies at the government ministries. 

This panel discussion will explore the challenges hindering the development of quantum technology in developing countries. Representatives from quantum technologically advanced countries will join panelists from developing countries to find potential solutions.
