 Quantum communication is one of the central themes at GAP. From seminal QKD experiments under lake Geneva to teleportation experiments in real-world communication networks, The GAP in Geneva has become synonymous with quantum communication. Central to many of these endeavours is entanglement,​ which provides us with somewhat of a leitmotif - that entanglement is not only fascinating,​ but also useful – a resource. Quantum communication is one of the central themes at GAP.

 For more than a decade, we have endeavoured to demonstrate this, not only in the lab but also with the view that, to be useful, it has to survive in the real world. This requires making some compromises,​ but often, this has also pushed us towards new and exciting directions and opened up opportunities to perform foundational experiments,​ or on the other end of the spectrum, industrialise quantum technologies. For more than a decade, we have endeavoured to demonstrate this, not only in the lab but also with the view that, to be useful, it has to survive in the real world.
