For building quantumtechnology in Hungary, a consortium has been founded led by MTA Wigner RCP.  The members of the consortium, named HunQuTech are:

four academy and university members:

Wigner Research Centre for Physics, consortium leader,

the Institute of Phyics,

the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics,

the Institute of Physics of the Eötvös Loránd University

and  four high-tech companies from the fields of communication, low-noise electronic data processing, and optical microscopy:

Bonn Hungary Electronics,

Ericsson Hungary,

Nokia-Bell Labs,


The goal of the consortium is to build research  labs for creating quantumtechnology. In the quantumtechnology labs the researchers are going to be capable of isolating and controlling quantum objects: atoms, photons, electrons and nuclear spins.

The consortium develops tools for storing and sending quantum bits (the units of quantum information), and tools for creating quantum entangled pairs. One of the aims of the researchers  at HunQuTech is the building a quantum secure communication channel in four years as well.
