The director of the IMDEA Software Institute, Manuel Carro, attended yesterday’s D+I Innovation Awards 2023, which took place at the Espacio Bernabéu La Salle by Eneldo, at 18:00, representing the Institute for its participation in the award-winning MADQuantum-CM project.
The third edition of the awards was an opportunity to bring together all the key players in the industry in a single space for networking, where the work of the year’s most important figures in the sector was recognized. These independent awards, chosen by an exceptional jury, are already the sector’s benchmark.
MADQuantum-CM has been awarded in the category of “Best public project to support digitization” whose objective is to develop the largest European testbed for quantum communications, born from the REDIMadrid initiative. Coordinated by the Polytechnic University of Madrid and with the collaboration of seven public partners, including IMDEA Software, and private partners, the project aims, among other things, to create the best security network to protect the information transmitted over the MadQCI network. It also envisages the development of very high precision measurements or communications between quantum computers, among other technologies.
The gala was inaugurated by Pedro J. Ramírez, Executive Chairman and CEO of EL ESPAÑOL, and Carme Artigas, Secretary of State for Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence. The Deputy Minister of Universities, Research and Science, Ana Ramírez de Molina, collected the award on behalf of the Community of Madrid. In addition, Laura Ortiz, professor at the UPM, attended on behalf of the institution coordinating the project.
