WG2 Atom Technology goes Commercial

This working group focuses on the exploitation potential of atom-quantum technologies with a focus on sensors, where Europe is currently world-leader. Examples include gravimetry, navigation and geology, but also technology providers, e.g. lasers.

Objectives: Bring together researchers and companies with the aim of advancing the fledgling quantum-high-tech industry in Europe.


  • Providing an interface between industry and academia.
  • Scouting new opportunities and providing support.
  • Support academics in commercialisation of their ideas.
  • Function as an efficient industry-academia link.

Milestones: Establishment of a Pan-European platform for quantum-high-tech / academia exchanges.

Major Deliverables:

  • Two workshops on the commercial exploitation of academic ideas.
  • IPR and startup training at four summer schools.
