An innovator in quantum technology
ID Quantique has a global footprint through its R&D partnerships with leading companies and R&D institutions. It maintains close ties with academic institutions by participating in several Swiss and European R&D programs and plays a leading role in cutting-edge projects to drive innovation to the market. The company has over 40 engineers with over 500 years of accrued experience in the highly multi-disciplinary fields required to transform quantum technologies into industrialized products. IDQ maintains its leadership role by continuously developing and expanding its patent portfolio with new technologies that are complementary to its core businesses. The growing number of patents IDQ holds is a testament to its commitment to innovation.
Although the company is evolving fast, the original founders still play a leading role – Dr Grégoire Ribordy is CEO and Vice Chairman of the board, and Prof Nicolas Gisin, head of the Group of Applied Physics in the University of Geneva, is Chairman of the board.
