A Chair dedicated to quantum communication is being created in Geneva. The result of a partnership between University of Geneva (UNIGE) and Constructor University (CU) based in Bremen and Schaffhausen - which was signed on Wednesday 30 November in Geneva - this Chair will be positioned at the crossroads of fundamental research and applied research in this cutting-edge field of quantum physics. By pooling the expertise of researchers from both institutions, this new Chair, which is occupied by Prof. Tittel, promises major advances and innovations, particularly in the field of quantum networks and secure information transfer. This first collaboration between UNIGE and Constructor University is part of a broader vision shared in a Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2021 that will reinforce the newly created Geneva Quantum Centre (GQC).
