Minister of Science Dariusz Wieczorek and Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Digitalisation Krzysztof Gawkowski signed the Quantum Pact (European Quantum Technologies Declaration) on behalf of the Republic of Poland. „It is a document strengthening European cooperation for the development of a world-class quantum technology ecosystem”, reports the Ministry of Science and Higher Education (MNiSW).

“We are signing the declaration to intensify activities related to building a network of quantum computers in Europe, including Poland. Cooperation with the Ministry of Digitalisation on this issue is crucial. Poland wants to be in the top league when it comes to the development of modern technologies, computer networks or the construction of a quantum computer”, said the science minister.

“Today’s signing of the Quantum Pact is an expression of responsibility for what place Poland will take in Europe in creating a digital fortress and a digital world that will change reality”, added the Minister of Digitalisation.

The European Quantum Technologies Declaration was drafted in December 2023 under the leadership of the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The document emphasises the strategic importance of quantum technologies for EU competitiveness in the areas of science and industry. It also calls for cooperation to develop a world-class quantum technology ecosystem in the Old Continent.

To date, 18 countries have signed the Quantum Pact including Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia and Sweden and, most recently, Poland. The signatories of the declaration recognise the strategic importance of quantum technologies for the scientific and industrial competitiveness of the EU and pledge to cooperate in the development of the quantum technology ecosystem across Europe. They set as the goal of joint activities to make Europe the first “Quantum Valley” – region at the forefront of quantum innovation.
