The Inside Quantum Technology conference in The Hague in 2024 is set to feature an exceptional speaker: Chris Erven, the CEO and Co-Founder of quantum hardware company KETS. Erven brings a wealth of experience, having spent the last 15 years building prototype quantum communication systems and exploring their commercial potential.

Erven’s journey in the quantum field began as a Lecturer in Quantum Engineering at the Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (QETLabs) at the University of Bristol. He was instrumental in pioneering a next-generation chip-based approach to quantum encryption during his tenure there. This innovative work laid the groundwork for his current venture, where he commercializes this technology with KETS.

At KETS, Erven and his team have made significant strides in miniaturizing quantum-safe hardware. Their achievements in reducing this technology’s size, form factor, and price point have made it commercially viable, a breakthrough in the field of quantum communications. This development is crucial in a world increasingly aware of the need for quantum-safe encryption methods.

Erven’s deep understanding of the quantum encryption and communication market is informed by directly engaging customers across diverse sectors, including Telecommunications, Data Centers, Defence and space, Finance, Government, and Critical Infrastructure. This extensive knowledge base and his leadership role at KETS position him as a leading expert in the field, capable of offering valuable insights into the current state and future potential of quantum technology.

Holding a Ph.D. from the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, Erven’s academic background is as impressive as his entrepreneurial achievements. His contributions to the field of quantum computing are not just technical but also visionary, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in quantum technology.

At the Inside Quantum Technology conference, attendees can expect Erven to share his unique perspectives on the challenges and opportunities in quantum communication, using his experience at KETS as an illustration. His session is anticipated to delve into the practicalities of commercializing quantum technologies, the evolving landscape of quantum encryption, and the broader impact of these advancements on various industry sectors.

Chris Erven’s presence at the conference underscores the exciting developments in quantum technology and the crucial role of innovators like him in shaping a quantum-secure future. His session is a must-attend for anyone interested in cutting-edge quantum communication and its application across different industries.

IQT The Hague 2024 is the Netherlands’ fifth global conference and exhibition. The Hague is a Quantum Technology Event focusing on Quantum Networking and Quantum Security. Ten vertical topics encompassing more than 40 panel talks from over 100 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding of state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum internet and the current impact of quantum-safe technologies on cybersecurity and quantum computers.

The conference brings together corporate management, entrepreneurs, end users, technology providers, infrastructure partners, researchers and investors working on current developments. IQT The Hague is organized by 3DR Holdings, IQT Research, QuTech, QIA (Quantum Internet Alliance) and Quantum Delta, who will bring leading organizations and professionals together in this important event. The April conference is “in-person” to ensure maximum networking and discussion at the Postillion Hotel & Convention Centre in The Hague.
