There is a global race to develop quantum technologies, which will lead to significant changes in society. Denmark is in a good position and with this research project we get the opportunity to test the huge potential of the technology on our data infrastructure. By establishing an experimental quantum communications network between four ministries, we get closer to actually getting the technology into society. This is positive because it also has an enormous potential for businesses and industry
