ESPI Online Event, Quantum Technologies and Space

Quantum Technologies and Space: Revealing trends through patent data

09 November 2021 (15.30 – 16.45 CET), online (Zoom)

This webinar will be a launch event of an upcoming study “Quantum technologies and space”, produced by European Patent Office (EPO) and European Space Policy Institute (ESPI) in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA). This study explores the major contemporary trends in the domain of space applications of Quantum Technologies through patent data analysis.

EPO, ESPI and ESA currently collaborate on a series of space-themed “Patent insight reports”, a publicly available series of studies available on EPO website, which focus on exploitation of global patent filing data in order to identify major trends and technology developments in specific sub-domains of the space sector. The first study of this series, exploiting patent statistics in the domain of Cosmonautics, has been published in July 2021.

The webinar will be recorded and made available online afterwards.
